RaySearch Laboratories AB: Florida hospital selects RayStation(R)STOCKHOLM--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)-- RaySearch Laboratories AB (STO:RAYB.st ) has received an order for its RayStation® treatment planning system from Baptist Hospital of Miami.
Baptist Hospital of Miami is a part of Baptist Health South Florida which is the largest faith-based, not-for-profit health care organization in the region, with an outstanding reputation for medical and service excellence.

We will continue to work hard to keep expanding in the US as well as on other markets.”
