Union Hospital (Terre Haute, Ind.) has deployed enterprise asset tracking from Versus Technology (Traverse City, Mich.) to manage equipment resources, including maintenance, storage and deployment.

The company says Versus automates communication, including location-based and time-based alerts and notification of provider/patient interaction. Union Hospital already utilized the Versus solution in reporting the location of their spot vital machines, many of which were recently recalled; Union Hospital located all recalled units, says the company.

Union Hospital was founded in 1892 as a 20-bed facility. Today, the 343-bed hospital is a regional referral center, serving patients in west-central Indiana and east-central Illinois with its Terre Haute location, Union Hospital Clinton, and a large network of physicians and health clinics.
