WILKES-BARRE, Pa (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Metro, a world leader in providing technology, storage and transport solutions for healthcare facilities, today announced their new Metro SecureRx MD System. Available exclusively on the Metro Flo Series of hybrid medication workstations, the SecureRx MD System communicates seamlessly with Metro MedDispense® Automated Dispensing Systems as well as other leading automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) to improve the tracking, control and delivery of patient specific medications to the bedside.
