PRAD Radiation Partners, Ltd. was founded in Costa Rica over 12 years ago. Recently as a part of expanding our reach we have opened our offices in Kingston, Jamaica. The majority of PRAD’s well known professionals are qualified in the areas of Radiation Protection and Medical Physics.
Originally our company emerged from a group of dedicated professionals who are committed to offering quality Radioprotection services and the continuous training of occupationally exposed workers in their countries. We were dissatisfied with the standard of services offered in this particular niche of the medical industry. Coming together in September 2006, the group honed multiple skills, experience and knowledge of quality service standards to form PRAD. Knowing the importance of this work and seeing how this development would positively influence the existing standards, we sought to impact the private and public aspect of radiological safety in Costa Rica and Central America.
Our team is comprised of Medical Physicists, Nuclear Engineers, Radiotherapists, Doctors, and Radiologists. We maintain the support of Proxdose, a U.S. based corporation and our sister companies located in Mexico, Peru and Switzerland.
Our aim is to provide the necessary technical support for radiological protection programs within facilities that utilize ionizing radiation. Our team of professionals is trained to handle sophisticated machinery and always prepared to deliver the highest quality service. We ensure this standard by being fully adaptable to the needs of our customers and the working environment. With the pace of technological advancement in our field, we constantly meet and maintain international radiological safety standards wherever we work.
We are very conscious of our earth and put our efforts into making purposeful decisions to preserve it. Keeping this in mind in the future, we want to become the leading company within Central America and the Caribbean known for our innovative use of green technologies and introduction of improvement practices, associated with the use of ionizing radiation. All aspects of our operation are carried out in an environmental friendly fashion keeping in line with the peaceful purpose of our mission.
PRAD Radiation Partners, Ltd. has local offices and affiliates within Central America and the Caribbean providing prestigious clients with quality radiation protection and medical physics services. A few of our locations include:
