Ohio Clinical Engineering Association (OCEA) began in 1974 as a gathering of doctor's facility engineers who were a part of a joint Safety Committee gathering of the Greater Cleveland Hospital Association. These specialists had a conflict with the City of Cleveland over testing research center necessities for Medical Equipment that was being used in the city. After this difference was determined, these designers kept on meeting all the time and the association Clinical Engineering Technology Association CETA was shaped. In 1980 the words North Coast was added to the name to assign the geographic range and NCCETA was made.
In the 1990's different associations appeared in Ohio. There was the Toledo Biomed Association, the Central Ohio Medical Equipment Technicians Association, and the Dayton Biomed. We are still during the time spent gathering data about these gatherings and we are looking for your assistance. On the off chance that you have further insight about these early associations please contact an individual from the Executive Committee.
In 2002, in the wake of being torpid for a couple of years, NCCETA was brought again into presence. In 2003 the choice was made to make the association State Wide and the new name Ohio Clinical Engineering Association OCEA was chosen.Read More»
