Many women enjoy a very fulfilling careet at Siemens Healthineers because they can make a direct and considerable difference to people's lives.

Working at Siemens Healthineers sees day-to-day activities contributing to making a healthier world. And when the women working at Siemens Healthineers are faced with the company's technology in real-life, the impact becomes even more tangible. 

Let's hear from some of the talented women working for Siemens Healthineers Magnet Technology as they help design and manufacture the company's superconducting MRI magnets.

Personal experiences with the very products they help design and build 

A group of women working in magnet technology at Siemens Healthineers, came together to discuss their work and the incredible satisfaction they gain from the real-life impact from their efforts.

Siemens Healthineers Quality Regulatory Affairs Engineer Sarada Pendyala explains that: "An MRI scan really helped our personal life because my husband has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. MRI Scanning really helps doctors to identify the inflammation and then that's how my husband's treatment started. Whenever my husband has a scan and whenever he has an appointment, he goes with so much pride that his wife works in MRI scanning, and the nurses are always so surprised to see a patient very excited to go into the MRI scanner."

Sarada explains her work in saying: "So when the product builds in and the documentation comes upstairs, I release the final documentation, so we get a certificate for each magnet. At the end of the magnet, I really feel proud of myself that it was shaped here, and I'm sure it's going to work for a patient or in any hospital, and it's going to help people. So, my work has a personal touch for me...I know how the parts go in to complete the build."

Sarada says she can really see the growth of the company, herself and the department and the volume of the magnets.

"I always think about the fact I work for a company that produces MRI scans that really helps people, not only my husband, to really identify what internal issues they have. I'm proud to be part of Siemens Healthineers," attests Sarada. 

Proud of where they work

Siemens Healthineers Learning & Development Manager, Alex Rowland, says she herself had an MRI recently, and went to a Siemens Healthineers hub ... and thought "Ah, I work there.

"I think even working at Magnet Technology I just took for granted that if we need an MRI, we have an MRI. In fact, the country of Yemen hadn't had an MRI scanner for around 9 years, so that was a really proud moment," says Alex. 

"When I had gall stones I actually I went into a mobile scanner, and I felt quite proud that I was in the factory making MRI scanners. I've been in a couple [of scans] now, and they've both been very different experiences," shares Siemens Healthineers Technician in Coil Impregnation, Linda Mitchell. 

Working on innovative products

Former PLM Project Accountant, Rebecca Coolin, explains: "The whole idea of the new systems was that it would reach new markets and get to places where they haven't been able to have MRI scans before because they're much lighter, they don't take up as much space in a hospital anymore, and they're much easier to install."

Siemens Healthineers employees take pride in their work 

Taking on a role that gives back and makes a difference can instill a great sense of pride.
