Agfa’s integration of Sterling Diagnostic Imaging has begun to move forward. The company has appointed its North American management team for the combined Sterling and Agfa businesses. Former Sterling employees are well represented.

Sterling COO Ernest Waaser has been named senior vice president of North America, replacing John Glass, who is now managing director of Agfa’s worldwide medical imaging business.

Sterling senior vice president for Americas Robert Pryor has been tapped as vice president of North American sales, handling field sales, national accounts, and the company’s efforts in the U.S. military’s Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (DIN-PACS) project.

Agfa veteran Robert Cooke has been named vice president of Impax Solutions, continuing his previous responsibilities for product management, marketing, and professional services for the PACS and CR businesses. Michael Sullivan has been appointed vice president of customer support. He has handled similar responsibilities for Agfa.

Sterling executive director of worldwide marketing William Ward will head up marketing communications and strategy, while John Wilkens will lead the firm’s business development efforts. Wilkens had previously served as vice president of Sterling’s Imaging Media Systems business.

Finally, Agfa has received a $5.6 million PACS and CR contract from Elmhurst Hospital Center in Elmhurst, NY. Agfa expects to complete installation at the 500-bed hospital in late September.
