Pickerington Methodist president DPM Kevin Lutz said: “Since opening in 2015, the OhioHealth Pickerington Medical Campus has proudly served the community and its healthcare needs.
“Now, with the opening of the hospital, we’re thrilled to expand our already robust services with new capabilities that will save and improve the lives of our patients.”
OhioHealth said the Pickerington hospital will offer new smart room technology, to ease communication between patients and caregivers.
These include digital patient education, a digital meal ordering platform, real-time patient data access via digital door signage, as well as in-room video capabilities.
Lutz added: “We are so excited to be bringing this kind of technology to Pickerington. It’s going to be a game-changer in terms of patient experience and it’s also going to allow our care teams to work more efficiently to deliver the highest quality of care.”
