Sunquest acquires Antrim Corp.
Antrim, formerly a subsidiary of Compucare, is a leading reference laboratory system provider, with 65% of the U.S. market, including Smith-Kline Beecham, Corning/Metpath and Roche/LabCorp commercial laboratories. These commercial laboratories service over 200,000 participating physicians. Antrim is based in Plano, Texas.
"Today's announcement demonstrates a continued commitment to growth through strategic acquisitions," said Dr. Sidney Goldblatt, Sunquest's CEO and President. "The acquisition is strategic for its products, its people and its client base. Antrim is known for excellence in commercial reference laboratory informatics, just as Sunquest is known for excellence in the hospital enterprises and Integrated Delivery Network."
"The successful interoperability of Antrim's commercial lab product and Sunquest's multi-hospital product is proven in seven IDNs, each with a large commercial reference laboratory business," said Rich Wesson, Chief Operating Officer of Sunquest. "The functionality of our combined systems strengthens our position as a leader serving the changing needs of the healthcare industry."
