GE Healthcare receives $11 million contract
CHICAGO -- GE Healthcare Thursday announced its largest ever ultrasound deal in the United States, an $11 million order by St. Luke's University Health Network in the Northeast.
The Chicago company will install GE Healthcare ultrasound technology and IT workflow solutions for the St. Luke's health network, which includes 12 hospitals and more than 300 outpatient sites in 11 counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
"The consistency of ultrasound systems across the network will allow accurate replication of patient studies, which would otherwise be challenging when working with different brands," said Dr. Hal L. Folander, senior vice president and network chairman of the St. Luke's Department of Radiology.
St. Luke's will acquire GE Healthcare's LOGIQ E10 general imaging machines and Vivid E95 for echocardiography, both of which connect to Viewpoint 6, GE Healthcare's automated reporting and post-processing system.
