— Raymond Rosenberry, Application Specialist, OSF System Laboratory

“Sunquest ran with our vision. They never said, ‘We can’t do that.’ With other companies we talked to, we were kind of hitting a brick wall.”
— Bruce Williams, Corporate Director of Laboratory Services, Trivergent Health Alliance

“We were able to be successful with this design with Sunquest, where we may not have been as successful with another vendor. Without Sunquest, I don’t think we would have the customer satisfaction that we do.”
