"CareTech will take the lead role in developing and implementing a comprehensive healthcare IT strategy that puts patient care first, and we look forward to a great relationship."

Chief among CareTech's responsibilities will be assuming the IT leadership role at Marietta Memorial Hospital and developing a long-term IT strategic plan that aligns with the hospital's patient care objectives, as well as healthcare IT provisions in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). CareTech Solutions will also provide Marietta Memorial Hospital with technology installations and support, including assuming responsibility for the full spectrum of IT services in support of the hospital's IT infrastructure, desktop environment, applications, telecommunications and service desk.

"CareTech's healthcare-specific focus and its efforts to understand Marietta Memorial Hospital's technology challenges were critical factors in the hospital selecting CareTech as its IT partner," said Jim Giordano, president and CEO of CareTech Solutions. "We're delighted to play a key role in helping to develop, execute and lead Marietta Memorial Hospital's IT strategy to help ensure it becomes a model for other hospitals relative to alignment with the national vision for healthcare IT."
