Sacu Project Company Visit to GE in Helsinki
The SACU project, with partners from South Korea (Daegu KNU, School of Nursing, business school, IT-technology) and Finland (Metropolia UAS, Health Care Diagnostic Services and Service Management), is about patient safety and quality of health care.
The project delegate visited GE in Helsinki on November 2017. It was a perfect match with the project and we found the time spent with GE very valuable.
Professors Eunjoo Lee (second from the right) and Gyewan Moon (first from the right) from KNU in South Korea visited Metropolia UAS in Helsinki, Finland last November, 2017.
During professors trip we had a great opportunity to visit GE Healthcare in Helsinki. GE has a long history in Finland, and its focus is in comprehensive, digitalized monitoring services. In 2003, GE Healthcare acquired Finnish Instrumentarium’s Datex-Ohmeda division, which manufactured anesthesia, respiratory, and monitoring equipment. GE has a startup company village in Helsinki too, which is a very innovative initiative.
Mrs. Kristina Leppälä (second from the left) was our mistress during the visit. Engineering Manager René Coffeng (first from the left) described us GE’s operations globally, the history of the company in Finland and its local activities, the product development process and other interesting issues. Mrs. Leppälä took us to the exhibition area and we saw real products from a historical point of view. The third person in the picture is senior lecturer Kimmo Seppänen from Metropolia UAS.
