According to Pam Chaplin, MDMH Business Analyst, the installation of modern information networks and digitization of the records has brought about enormous changes and improvements to the quality of health care delivered.

It provides each caregiver with an instant link to all other doctors and services, including links to the pharmacy and to a patient’s private doctor and post treatment at their home.

Susan Hill, Director of Nursing, said that she is very proud of all the staff at the hospital and enjoys working with a staff that puts patient care above everything else.The award wall is filling up as Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital (MDMH) in Hamilton continues to rack up the awards for high quality care.
