Emerson Buying Manufacturer Of Medication Management Systems

Company will become part of InterMetro division.

Emerson said Thursday it has acquired Lionville Systems Inc., a manufacturer of medication management systems for the healthcare industry.

Based in Coatesville, Pa., Lionville will become part of Emerson Storage Solutions and its InterMetro division. Terms of the deal weren't available.

Emerson said the acquisition strengthens its healthcare platform served by InterMetro, which in May 2006 acquired Flo Healthcare, a provider of integrated wireless and mobile clinical workstation solutions to the healthcare industry. The combined companies have healthcare revenues in excess of $100 million with penetration in over 4,000 domestic hospitals, Emerson said.

“The combined expertise and market leadership of InterMetro, Flo, and Lionville puts us at the forefront in high profile areas of efficient electronic medical record utilization and effective medication administration, which help to reduce errors at the point-of-care and improve patient safety,” said Pat Sly, Emerson executive vice president.

Lionville introduced a line of point-of-care carts in 2005 capable of delivering medication to a patient’s bedside while wirelessly interfacing with the hospital’s electronic medication administration records. In addition to its wireless point-of-care carts, Lionville specializes in medication carts, medication cabinets, and pharmacy workstations.
