Will Willman, Global Med's Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing EU/ME/ Asia, stated, "We are very pleased that the historic Centre Hospitalier de Verdun has selected Inlog's EdgeLab solution to upgrade their laboratory software. Verdun's decision was a result of the excellent references that our software received from the Inlog customers that Verdun contacted, the full range of features the software offers, the integrated SapaNet (El Dorado Control) quality management software, and the ability to interface to our EdgeTrack transfusion management software (not for sale in the U.S.) on the same database." About Centre Hospitalier de Verdun The Verdun Hospitals have a rare and fascinating history. Founded in the 7th century, the first written evidence of a care facility near the current location was in 1093. The hospital has evolved through the centuries: the thirteenth century saw a name change to Sainte-Catherine; in 1570 a general hospital was formed; during the French Revolution the organization Hospices Civils de Verdun (Sainte-Catherine and Saint-Nicolas) was created; Sainte-Catherine was partially destroyed during WWI, and then repaired; St. Nicolas was used as a military hospital during WWII. Between World War II and 2007, Verdun hospitals expanded to four separate facilities including Desandrouins and Saint Joseph. At almost 1,000 beds in three different sites, Verdun handles about 25,000 emergencies per year. Nearly 1,800 people work at the hospital including more than 170 physicians.
