SamarionSolution Installed in Covington Retirement Community
Date:8/25/2009

JACKSON, Miss., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Samarion Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark Rodgers announced today that the SamarionSolution has been installed in the Christwood retirement community in Covington, Louisiana.

The SamarionSolution is the only enterprise quality improvement system that provides healthcare facilities with true prevention technologies, including fall prevention, wandering and elopement prevention and abuse and neglect prevention. This innovative solution utilizes image analysis software and intelligent alerting to allow patient intervention before a catastrophic event, such as an unassisted bed exit. Falls are one of the leading causes of accidental death and injury in the long-term care facilities.

Christwood is a not-for-profit community initiated 15 years ago by Christ Episcopal Church in Covington. It was among the first licensed Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in the state of Louisiana. Christwood offers wellness programs, assisted living and skilled nursing care for residents.

"Non-profit, faith-based facilities like Christwood represent an important segment of long term care providers," stated Rodgers. "As a faith-based provider, Christwood operates a facility that is focused strongly on resident care. It is a pleasure for Samarion to partner with someone who shares our passion for quality elder care."

Steve Holzhalb, executive officer of Christwood, said, "The Samarion system is a vital new tool that will help us ensure the safety and security of our residents. We are pleased to partner with Samarion and hope our installation will encourage other facilities to adopt this system. The Samarion system can truly change the way long term care is provided to the elderly."

Rodgers added, "The Continuing Care Retirement Community model is a promising approach to meeting the demands of our nation's aging population. CCRC facilities offer residents the opportunity to remain in a familiar environment as their healthcare needs change with aging. The SamarionSolution will give these residents and their families an added measure of comfort and security."
