JMI-Edison is the leading medical imaging company serving government, private sector, and military healthcare facilities in Guam and Micronesia. The company also installs and maintains General Electric (GE) Healthcare equipment at US Military base hospitals in Japan and Korea. JMI is the exclusive GE Healthcare Representative in Guam, Micronesia, and the US Military Bases in Japan, South Korea, and Diego Garcia.
To ensure service continuity for mission-critical equipment, JMI has five Multimodality Engineers on standby 24 hours/day, seven days a week, to respond within the hour at the Guam Memorial Hospital and Naval Hospital.
JMI was founded in 1978 on the island of Guam by the late Mr. John Ilao. The company is firmly rooted in electrical services, starting as JMI Electrical & Air Conditioning, an electrical and air conditioning contractor. The following year, JMI established a new company, JMI Motor and Bearing Supply, to serve the island’s increasing demand for electric motors, generators, pumps, and transformers.
Soon after, in 1979, JMI started winning bids set out by the Guam Memorial Hospital (GMHA).
The companies merged into JohnDel International Inc. (JIL) dba JMI-Edison in September of 1986. The corporation continued expanding its lineup of products and services, entering the healthcare technology market in 1994.
JMI-Edison sold its first X-ray equipment to the Department of Public Health (DPHSS) in 1994. The growing demand for Radiology equipment and maintenance prompted the company’s expansion in the field. Rapidly becoming the healthcare imaging industry leader, in 1996, JMI installed and operated the first Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility in Guam and Micronesia.
In 1997, JMI became the official GE Medical Representative in Guam and Micronesia. The company won most bids on all of the GE Healthcare equipment for the GMHA and other medical facilities.
GE Healthcare is one of the most respected and largest medical equipment providers globally, with the most stringent and thorough high standards that guarantee its products’ installation, proper maintenance and maximum system uptime.
Growth continued in 1999, as JMI added healthcare product lines, including patient monitoring, sutures, endo-surgery instruments, and pharmaceutical supplies.
The 2000s brought more opportunities for the company to further excel in the healthcare technology field.
In 2006, the US Naval Hospital, Guam, needed new equipment. JMI-Edison successfully installed a GE Lightspeed l6- slice CT Scanner, GE Proteus X-ray, GE Precision 500D Fluoroscopy, GE Diamond Mammography, GE Infinia Nuclear Imaging camera, and GE AMX4+ Mobile X-ray units.
FHP Health Center needed a GE Lightspeed Ultra 8-slice CT Scanner in 2008, and JMI successfully installed the unit. In 2013, FHP added a GE Senographe Essential Mammography System and GE Discovery 750W 3.0T MRI System.
Further installations at FHP happened in 2016, with an additional GE Brivo DR-F Rad System and GE Proteus Digital Rad Systems order.
The US Naval Hospital, Guam, moved into a new facility in 2014. JMI, given the task of installing GE Optima CT660 64-slice CT Scanner, GE Precision 500D Fluoroscopy, GE Senographe Essential Mammography Systems, GE Discovery 670 Nuclear/CT Imaging camera, GE XR650 Digital Radiography Systems, GE XR220 Mobile Digital Radiography System, and the GE Discovery 750W 3.0T MRI System.
In 2015, JMI installed Patient Monitors and Anesthesia at Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC).
With its successful track record at the US Naval Hospital, Guam, military healthcare facilities in the region called on the company for service. In 2017 JMI installed several Proteus XR/f X-ray systems at Navy Clinics in Okinawa, Japan.
In 2018 the Naval Hospital, Guam, contracted JMI once again to install the Pristina Mammography System.
The Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, requested the company’s help in 2019. JMI installed Patient Monitors and Maternal Infant Care Products at the facility.
JMI’s enduring relationship with FHP resulted in the installation of an EVO CT scanner in 2019.
JMI completed additional installations of two GE Revolution EVO CT scanners at the Guam Memorial Hospital in 2019.
In 2020, JMI delivered two portable AMX-240 X-ray installations to the Guam Regional Medical City.
Just like everything in technology, diagnostic systems have a product life cycle. Systems become obsolete in 7-10 years. The true testament of the company’s excellence in service is that their customers upgrade their new equipment through JMI.
JMI-Edison has 43 years of proven experience in the electrical engineering plus healthcare technology fields in Guam and the Asia Pacific region. The industry leader continues to grow with a vision and commitment to quality service and care into the future.
