Northport Medical Center will soon spend $638,000 on a new telemetry monitoring system to replace an outdated system that has been in place since the 1990s.
The new monitoring system will be identical to the one put in place at DCH Regional Medical Center, which will allow the two hospitals to coordinate alarms and response protocols.
"We believe this will allow for improved training and utilization of staff across campuses, which can
enhance patient care," said Lorraine Yehlen, vice president for patient care services.
The DCH Health System board of directors approved the purchase at its meeting Tuesday.
The health system will also pay $39,000 a year for the system's software to be updated and maintained.
