erformance."

The installations will begin in July at Ochsner Baptist Medical Center, Ochsner Medical Center – Kenner and Ochsner Medical Center – Baton Rouge with plans to go live in the first quarter of 2012. The rollout to remaining Ochsner hospitals will continue through 2012.  

In addition to the approximately 150 beds that will be monitored across the system, capacity will exist to serve other hospitals in the region. Ochsner, which recently was recognized as being in the top 20 percent of health systems in the nation by Thomson Reuters, plans to expand its eICU Program to hospitals in surrounding communities.

"Ochsner has always had a critical mass of the most highly sophisticated and technologically complex resources," said Dr. Joseph Bisordi, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Ochsner Health System. "The eICU Program will enable greater sharing of our resources throughout the region, allowing even critically ill patients a better opportunity to stay close to home and family."  

We are proud to be partnering with a highly regarded Academic Medical Center like Ochsner to bring the eICU Program, not only to patients in New Orleans, but to patients throughout the state of Louisiana," said Frank Sample, Philips VISICU CEO.  "The same courage, vision, and passion for patient care exhibited in the aftermath of Katrina are being demonstrated, yet again, by Ochsner as they look to extend their critical care expertise across the region."   

Ochsner Health System is southeast Louisiana's largest non-profit, academic, multi-specialty, healthcare delivery system with eight hospitals and over 38 health centers in Louisiana. Ochsner has been named the Consumer Choice for Healthcare in New Orleans for 15 consecutive years and is the only Louisiana hospital recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a "Best Hospital" across seven specialty categories.
