equipment to School of Medicine and UNC Hospitals
A Raleigh electronics company is providing valuable equipment to the School of Medicine and the new N.C. Women's and Children's Hospitals.
Powerware Corp. is donating 30 uninterruptible power systems, valued at $60,000, to be used in computers throughout the School of Medicine and another large system for the N.C. Women's and Children's Hospitals, which will open in August 2000. The large system is valued at about $100,000, said Mark A. Ascolese, senior vice president of the company's large systems group and product marketing.
Uninterruptible power systems ensure continuous power to important electronic equipment. Power protection in a hospital is especially important with life support equipment. The systems will enhance quality patient care and safety.
Powerware Corp. was formerly known as Exide Electronics.
