Agfa HealthCare, a leading provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow and diagnostic imaging solutions, announces today that it has inked a second, five-year agreement to provide Enterprise PACS technology for the entire Florida Division of Adventist Health System (Orlando, Florida, US). The new 35 million dollar [1], five-year agreement covers all 17 Adventist Health hospitals in the Florida Division, as well as its seven associated Outpatient Centers and the centralized Data Center.

The agreement includes the delivery of Agfa HealthCare’s DX-S™ units, CR 35-X™ and CR 85-X™ systems, MUSICA² ™, IMPAX™ for Orthopaedics, and Archive solutions.
