Agfa completes Sterling purchase

Agfa's acquisition of Sterling Diagnostic Imaging is now complete. The Ridgefield Park, NJ-based film and PACS vendor has acquired all the capital stock of Sterling's parent company, SDI Holding Corp. A management team for the combined companies has also been named. John Glass, managing director for Agfa-Gevaert's medical imaging business group, will head the combined businesses worldwide. Sterling executive vice president and COO Ernest Waaser will assume responsibilities previously held by Glass at Agfa, while Sterling chairman and CEO Rodney Wolford will stay on for a limited time to assist Glass and Waaser during the transition.

In other Agfa news, the firm's MIL-PACS organization will install PACS technology at a U.S. Naval Branch Medical Clinic in Key West, FL. The system will allow technicians in Key West to transmit digitized x-ray images to radiologists at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. System delivery is slated for early August, with installation targeted for completion by late September.

The company has also received a $25 million contract from Queensland Health of Australia, which will use the firm's Impax offering to link the imaging units at five tertiary teaching hospitals. Agfa will serve as a systems integrator, linking Impax with four other major digital technology suppliers. Queensland Health hopes to convert to a totally filmless environment within two to three years, according to Agfa.
