Mercy Teams Up with Philips to Launch Telehealth Services
Date:11/4/2013

ANDOVER, Mass. and ST. LOUIS, Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercy, one of the earliest providers of telehealth for critical care in the U.S., and Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced that they will collaborate to expand Mercy's telehealth services to include medical and surgical hospital units.

By 2017, Mercy is planning to provide the Philips eAcute program to 1,500 acute care beds not only within the Mercy system, but across the U.S.

The sixth largest Catholic health care system in the U.S., Mercy operates 32 hospitals and 300 outpatient facilities across Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, as well as outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Mercy's eICU and telestroke programs have been supported by Philips technology since 2006.
