Gestalt Diagnostics announced that it has finalized the acquisition of laboratory integration services company Peak Medical. This strategic acquisition expands Gestalt’s digital pathology integration services division and provides key industry expertise in healthcare connectivity services in addition to integration and support for LIS solutions.
Peak, and its employees, will be fully integrated into Gestalt and will become a key solution and service offering to both company’s customers. The two companies will be combined under the Gestalt Diagnostics name and brand. Peak customers will be seamlessly integrated into the family of Gestalt customers.
“Our companies share a common goal of providing top ranking solutions and services to the hospital and laboratory community,” says Dan Roark, Chief Executive Officer, Gestalt Diagnostics. “The acquisition of Peak will expand Gestalt’s expert team to include skills and experience for all types of connectivity with direct expertise in supporting legacy and current LIS’s alike. Peak has long standing relationships with many of the leading pathology laboratories in the United States which speaks volumes to their team’s abilities. We are excited to add Peak’s customers to our customer base and are happy to be able to offer them the same level of service they have always enjoyed combined with new solutions and the ability to include digital pathology to their roadmap under one umbrella. The addition of Ethan and his team will ensure that the relationships that Peak’s customers have enjoyed will continue.”
