Providian Medical LLC, already a leading provider of refurbished medical equipment in the United States, has announced an expansion into South America and the Spanish-speaking market.

­

The company’s expansion will help solve the problem faced by many Spanish-speaking medical professionals, who until now have often been forced to navigate a website created in English to find the right refurbished ultrasound equipment for their business. Now, they can browse through a completely Spanish website at Ultrasonido Usado that provides the same level of detail and information as www.ProvidianMedical.com. Users can look through a comprehensive selection of refurbished ultrasound machines, probes and transducers from more than a dozen manufacturers, like GE, Philips, HP, Sonosite and more.

Providian’s expansion into South America comes at a time when the continent is becoming one of the hottest emerging markets, surpassing those of China, India and Russia. In fact, the South American countries of Argentina, Brazil, Columbia and Chile, plus Mexico, make up fully half of the recently released top 10 globally emerging markets tabulated by the Frontier Strategy Group. Providing further evidence of the growing economic power of South America when it comes to demand for medical equipment, a research report from the Korn/Ferry Institute states that more than 90 percent of the hospitals in São Paulo are being expanded. With a total population surpassing 20 million, São Paulo is not only the largest city in Brazil but in all of South America, and the continent is seeing tremendous growth as the demand for a higher level of medical care continues to skyrocket.

“Whether you speak English, Spanish or both, it should be quick and easy to get the information you need when it comes to refurbished ultrasound equipment,” said Federico Chalupa, the International Sales Representative for Providian Medical. “Our expansion into the Spanish-speaking market gives medical professionals in South America and elsewhere the same level of service that has long been available in the United States.”
