Most kids grow up with dreams of becoming a firefighter, a rock star or a famous sports figure. As Atlantis Worldwide LLC CEO and founder Jeff Weiss said, “It’s not like I woke up one day and said—“Hey, I think I want to sell refurbished imaging solutions worldwide. It’s just where my skills, talents, connections and luck led me.”
Still, at cocktail parties and on elevators, it’s not the easiest thing to explain to others. But the simplest version sounds something like this: Atlantis Worldwide makes sure medical facilities get the cutting edge imagining technology they want—refurbished at very high standards—at a price that’s fair and affordable.
The long version is something like this: Weiss understood that hospitals and medical clinics wanted to cut costs, but didn’t want a negative impact on patient care. He also understood the high cost of imaging equipment, as well as the decreasing capital budgets facing many medical facilities. Sure, some clinics are still quick to “trade up” to the latest technology at every turn, but many others would happily put the less-than-new equipment to excellent use. By offering a refurbished product—complete with a state-of-the-industry warranty—he could make a lot of medical providers very happy.
And what exactly does “refurbished” mean? Think refurbished on steroids: every piece of equipment has passed a stringent process that ensures high quality standards, performance, reliability and cost effectiveness. And the warranties and service contracts offered by Atlantis are well below OEM prices.
Today the Atlantis team is dedicated to finding turnkey solutions through consultations, complete project management, service and innovative financing. The goal? To help our customers reduce the cost of imaging technology, increase revenue, increase R.O.I. and provide unparalleled service to their patients.
As technology advances, the product line offered by Atlantis Worldwide also expands. Whether our clients need MRI, CT, C-Arm, PET/CT, Digital X-Ray equipment, Mammography or interim radiology systems, we can provide the refurbished technology that’s appropriate for your practice or facility and—more importantly—the peace of mind that goes along with it.
It’s a pretty simple idea, but it can ultimately affect how much we all end up paying for medical imaging needs, be it for routine exams or moments of crisis.
So what do YOU do for a living?
