Toshiba Donates e-STUDIO™202L MFP To Help Better Serve Uninsured Community

IRVINE , California   ( May 12, 2006 ) :

Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. (TABS) today donated an e-STUDIO™202L multifunction product (MFP) valued at nearly $14,000 to Partners for Healing clinic (PFH) in Tullahoma, Tenn., as part of “Live with Regis and Kelly’s” 16th annual “Mom’s Dream Come True” special. Five extraordinary women were honored on the program, “Live’s” annual Mother’s Day tradition. The donation, which was spurred by a letter to show producers by the daughter of PFH’s founder, will enable the clinic to outfit its office with the latest technology designed to make document management more efficient for the facility’s growing patient base.

“We are proud to take advantage of this opportunity to assist such a deserving facility like Partners for Healing,” said Steve Rhorer, vice president, Marketing for TABS. “Satisfying the needs of our customers has always been a priority for TABS, and in turn, we hope that our donation of a Toshiba multifunction copier will contribute to Partners for Healing’s ability to better service its patients and ultimately improve its already exceptional care.”

Two other divisions of Toshiba also participated in the special on LIVE, which aired today. Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. donated a NemioTM 4D ultrasound system and Toshiba America Information Systems Inc. contributed four Portégé M400 Tablet PCs. Combined with TABS’ MFP donation, PFH received more than $80,000 worth of equipment from Toshiba.

“All of the physicians and volunteers at Partners for Healing are so grateful to Toshiba for its generous contribution,” said Dot Watson, PFH founder, volunteer and featured “LIVE” mom. “For years, we’ve relied on the donations of outdated equipment from local hospitals, and now we have the latest and most advanced technology available to provide the best possible care to our community. Partners for Healing is dedicated to providing free medical care to middle Tennessee’s working uninsured population, and we run largely on charitable grants and donations. A contribution like this truly is a dream come true.”
