New state-of-the-art equipment will improve patient care

By Patricia Beech – People’s Defender

The Adams County Regional Medical Center (ACRMC), has acquired and installed world class technology that will improve critical care for area residents.

The investment was made possible by the sales tax levy approved in the recent election and by grants from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the Ohio Department of Health.

ACRMC invested in the state-of-the-art systems from Mindray, one of the world’s leading developers of patient monitoring, anesthesia delivery solutions, and ultrasound systems, to improve care throughout the hospital, from the emergency to inpatient care.

“We are very proud to be able to offer the very best and latest technologies to help our fellow Adams County residents when they need it most,” said Roland Gee, MAHR, Chief Executive Officer of ACRMC. “We thank our local residents, the state of Ohio, and the ARC for their support in helping to make this new technology possible so that we can all benefit.”

Included in the acquisition were advanced solutions made available to the market only in the last year:

– 1 Transport Monitor, a compact yet powerful solution for monitoring patients continuously through the medical center and integrating seamlessly with the new Passport 12m patient monitors

– TD60 display telemetry unit which allows viewing of waveforms and key parameters directly on the patient-worn device, all while monitoring the patient centrally

– BeneVision Central Station which integrates the patient information from all the medical center’s monitors and telemetry units and allows it to viewed from a single location

– TE7 ultrasound system with its touchscreen interface and superior image quality, supporting fast, focused assessment and diagnosis when time is critical

“The Mindray monitoring, telemetry, and touch ultrasound systems are great resources that are now being used to help improve the quality of care for our patients, right here in Adams County,” said Rachel Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer of the Medical Center.

Wayne Quinn, President of Mindray North America, made note of the fact that the solutions now available at ACRMC were all introduced in the last nine months. “It is not often that we see a hospital able to integrate so many of the latest technologies in such a short period. We are pleased to have been a part of the transformation at Adams County,” he added.

Operating as a 25 bed critical access hospital in southern Ohio, Adams County Regional Medical Center hosts Hospice of Hope’s five-room Inpatient Hospice Suite. The Center also provides private in-patient rooms, Sleep Studies Center, Swing Bed Rehabilitation, Outpatient IV Therapy Suite, and Outpatient Observation. The facility includes an Emergency Department with 14 private rooms equipped with TV’s and telephones; a Surgical Suite, including two large operating suites, an endoscopy suite and a large same-day surgery suite. Services provided by specialty physicians in Out Patient Department continue to grow, as community needs for services are identified. ACRMC is certified as an American Heart Association Training Center, and has maintained accreditation by The Joint Commission since 1986.
