And following that, we will take questions. Randy?

Good afternoon and thank you for joining us today. Omnicell enjoyed success in the marketplace during the third quarter, with strong orders across our entire customer base. Last month, we announced that the Sentara Health Group chose Omnicell medication control systems to replace their existing installation. Sentara, an eight hospital system with over 2,000 beds, and the largest integrated delivery network in Virginia selected our systems for their advanced features and our superb service and support record.

In August, we announced that the Wellmont Health System began their conversion to Omnicell, OmniRx automated medication systems, SinglePointe software to manage their patient specific medications and seizure workstations and other solutions to streamline medication management throughout its facilities. Wellmont, a 1,100 bed system in Eastern Tennessee, is upgrading seven of its hospital facilities and chose Omnicell solutions based on long-term cost of ownership and the most advanced technology when compared to competing solutions.

And in September, we were happy to report that Deaconess Health System chose to replace its current vendor with Omnicell. We are particularly honored to have been selected at Deaconess’ partner of choice as it is an industry-recognized system of five acute care facilities in southwestern Indiana whose use of electronic health records have been rated among the top 2% of hospitals in the U.S.

Omnicell solutions are designed to be easily integrated and interoperable with Deaconess’ already existing IT network. We were specifically selected for our strong reporting tools and a clear solutions upgrade that combine a solid long-term investment with a high level of efficiency and patient safety.

In addition to these wins and others we announced in the last three months, we saw resurgence of U.S. federal government business, including orders from some of the largest Veterans Administration hospitals in the systems. Also during the quarter, we announced in addition to our product offering in the field of data analytics and reporting with the acquisition of Pandora Data Systems in September. Pandora is a leading provider of reporting tools used with automated dispensing systems and a well recognized and regarded brand among hospital directors of pharmacy.

Pandora has over 700 customers using their sophisticated reporting and analytics tools in conjunctions with most brands of medication control systems. Pandora products have grown to be an integral part of meeting regulatory requirements for many hospital customers. We plan to continue the investment Pandora has made in their platform for the benefit of all users of automated medication dispensing systems regardless of the brand of dispensing system in use. Pandora is located in Scotts Valley, California and employs 15 people. While a smaller acquisition, Pandora is another step in our strategy to offer a broad array of more advanced systems that improve hospital workflow and solve safety, efficiency, and regulatory compliance challenges for our customers.
