Miga Solutions Deepens Commitment to Global Healthcare with the Miga Solutions Foundation

Plymouth, MN – December 10, 2010 – Miga Solutions today announced that the Miga Solutions Foundation has been granted 501(c)(3) status, furthering Miga’s activities and support for medical missions and improving healthcare around the world.  Since its founding in 2004, Miga Solutions has participated in countless donation projects including most recently donating equipment and supplies for earthquake relief in Haiti and working with the Johan Santana Foundation to help provide critical medical equipment and infrastructure in the star baseball player’s hometown of Tovar, Venezuela.

The establishment of the Miga Solutions Foundation will provide more opportunity to support similar initiatives throughout the world. The Board of the Foundation looks forward to recruiting staff and an expanded base of volunteers to help advance the Foundation’s mission.

“The work of  the Miga Solutions Foundation is personally very important to me,” said Peter Robson, CEO of Miga Solutions and Chairman of the Foundation board. “Securing the non-profit status ensures that we can expand the scope and impact of our charitable activities, and continue to provide much-needed medical equipment to communities around the globe.”

About Miga Solutions

Since 2004, Miga Solutions has been helping hospitals generate significant annual savings by lowering the costs of their entire medical equipment lifecycle.

Hospitals in the US spend nearly $73B every year to purchase and maintain medical equipment.  Miga’s experience indicates that $9B of this annual spending can be saved if hospitals just had access to the information and tools they need to confidently identify and implement more cost effective equipment spending decisions.

Know the right price.

And get it.

Having the right information saves hospitals time and money on medical equipment lifecycle costs.
