Sam Solakyan epitomizes the traits of a successful entrepreneur with his ceaseless determination and ingenuity. One for sharing his visions and making them a reality, Solakyan has been avid in the advancement of medical technology and distributing them out to the public.
In 2012, Sam learned about the growing decline in medical technologies and emergency response equipment at his local community hospital, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. He quickly extended aid to bring in what the hospital required. During mid-February, he was honored for his charity and was offered a Commendation from the city of Burbank. “In a rapidly growing population like ours, we absolutely must find a way to provide health, safety and peace officers with the most state of the art and up to date equipment necessary to do their job. Recent events and statistics have proven that without state of the art emergency response systems in place, timing rescue of injured victims or responding to potentially dangerous criminal situations take longer therefore endangering lives. If we as citizens can find the resources to provide these, we will be grateful if, God forbid, we find ourselves in a crisis situation. Emergency situations are the great equalizer, they happen to the rich and poor alike regardless of race, color or creed,” said Solakyan during his address. He continued during his address to say, “I grew up in The Valley and my first job opportunity was right here in Burbank. I will always be proud to give back to the community that has given so much to me over the years and continues to be the place I call home for me and my family.”
As CEO of Vital Imaging, Sam Solakyan has been behind the recent developments of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and X-Ray technologies. These new devices have been placed in many hospitals and medical centers in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles areas. These new machines are the corner stone of Solakyan’s determination to allowing all to get the medical care they need.
