Phoenix Health Systems, the leading independent provider of hospital IT outsourcing and consulting services, today announced that Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center has signed a long-term contract for IT department management and software and infrastructure support. Southwest Regional is a modern facility with 165 licensed beds offering advanced equipment and a broad range of services to our patients. Its physicians and other healthcare professionals remain on the forefront of modern healing.
Phoenix will manage support of all medical software platforms, provide infrastructure support via onsite and remote personnel, remotely monitor SMRMC’s IT environment and provide service desk support.
“Our relationship with Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center is important because it demonstrates that rural healthcare providers can use technology and strategic partnerships to provide very high levels of care,” said Phoenix Health Systems President Ron Gue. “We view this relationship as a model for how IT can have as positive an impact on rural hospitals as it does in more urban areas. Phoenix is proud to support SMRMC administrators, clinicians and staff in this healthcare enhancement project.”
