SEATTLE, WA – Oct. 14, 2011 – Puget Sound Business Journal announced that Summit Imaging ranked number 6 on the 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies list at an awards event at The Washington State Convention Center on Oct. 12. The event, which drew nearly 500 people, announced and honored all 100 companies on the list and revealed each company’s ranking. The 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies are listed, with select companies profiled, in a special publication of the Business Journal on Oct. 14.
The Fastest-Growing Private Companies program was launched 17 years ago by the Puget Sound Business Journal to identify and recognize companies speeding to the top of their industries. To be eligible, companies must: be privately held and headquartered in Washington; have at least $500,000 in net revenue in 2008; show an overall growth from 2008 to 2010 fiscal years; and agree to have their net operating revenues with Puget Sound Business Journal.
"The companies that make this list are, by definition, among the most dynamic in our region," said Business Journal Publisher Gordon Prouty. "Especially this year, they have beaten the odds imposed by the Great Recession, making membership on this elite list all the more impressive. These companies are showing all of us what qualities it takes to grow in challenging times."

About Summit Imaging
Summit Imaging was founded in 2006; the purpose was to provide the fastest service and support in the third party ultrasound industry. The benchmark for service time was the OEM. Our company recognizes the urgency of repairing a down system as this creates a significant cost to healthcare facilities. It is our responsibility to restore your equipment to a functional state so the organization can resume its operations.
Summit Imaging has the infrastructure to support healthcare facilities anywhere in the world. Our innovative techniques in support have begun to transform the ultrasound market. The expectation of downtime is now less than 24 hours and support needs to be available 24/7.
Our infrastructure is centered around our technical support center. The technicians at Summit Imaging can immediately field your clinical engineers’ call and have a diagnosis of the issue within 30 minutes. A replacement part or transducer will then be processed and ready for overnight shipment or same day delivery on the next available flight. Our strong technical knowledge and immediate availability eliminates the need for an outsourced service call, saving two full business days of downtime.
