CareTech Solutions announced today that Marietta Memorial Hospital in
Marietta, Ohio extended its IT services contract with the company,
including responsibility for: IT strategy, IT leadership, data center
management, clinical help desk, and remote monitoring of infrastructure
and applications. This new three year extension that began in 2009
brings the partnership agreement to a total of eight years.
"The requirements for health IT have changed dramatically in the three
years since Marietta Memorial Hospital began its partnership with
CareTech Solutions," said Scott Cantley, president and CEO of Marietta
Memorial Hospital. "And in that period of time, CareTech has led us
through every strategic IT consideration, including integrating a
multitude of disparate systems in order to meet early Meaningful Use
requirements, all while staying within our hospital IT budget. Because
it's so rare to find professional services partners who can make the
right things happen asquickly as CareTech did, it was critical to
Marietta Memorial's ongoing success to keep them as a part of our team."
