Since 1967, Hickory, N.C.-based Catawba Valley Medical Center (CVMC) has built strong relationships with the people, businesses, and communities throughout the state’s Catawba Valley. As the region’s largest not-for-profit community hospital, it has 258 beds, 15 physician practices, and more than 1,100 employees, and its centers of excellence include mother and child services, comprehensive cancer care, rehabilitation, and neurosciences.
CVMC maintains more than 15,000 asset records, with a net book value in excess of $61 million. Its average monthly acquisitions exceed $600,000.
For many years, the hospital used GBA Systems’ FAMSOL product on an AS/400 environment. In 1997, the hospital decided to move to client/server technology. Although FAMSOL was an adequate application, GBA Systems did not offer a client/server version at the time.
