Critical Alert Systems announced the acquisition of Intego Systems, a provider of nurse call systems since 1983. “Intego has set the standard for hospital nurse call systems, and their capabilities are a great fit with our established critical messaging services,” said Ed Meyercord, CEO of Critical Alert Systems. “This acquisition allows Critical Alert Systems to offer a more robust and fully integrated range of communications and critical messaging services to healthcare providers nationwide. And, we’re excited to work with the Intego team to extend the reach of their cutting edge products and services.”
Two hundred healthcare organizations rely on Intego to provide communications between their patients and hospital staff that can lead to faster response times, higher patient quality of care, and greater patient satisfaction.
Intego, which becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of Critical Alert Systems, will be called Intego Software, LLC and remain headquartered in Jacksonville, FL. Intego founder Charles Bell joins Critical Alert Systems as an equity partner and in the new role of chief strategy and business development officer. Ted McNaught will retain his title of president and COO at Critical Alert Systems and will have operating responsibility for Intego.
