Appleton City hospital receives major telecommunications upgrade‏

SAN ANTONIO, TX (Jan. 7, 2014)— Ellett Memorial Hospital and Clinic, based in Appleton City, MO, has reached an agreement with Rural Health Telecom to upgrade broadband speeds due to funding expected in the amount of $96,336 provided by the federal Universal Service Fund (USF).

“As the sole hospital in our community, Ellett Memorial continually seeks innovative and creative ways to provide the highest level of quality care and services to our patients,” Ellett Memorial CEO Ray Magers said.

Ellett Memorial was experiencing a common issue faced by many rural hospitals across the country: the expense of bandwidth necessary for efficient transmission of radiology images and data.

“As a key component of primary care, radiology departments depend on fast and reliable transmission of large medical data and imaging files,” said John Stomp, director of information services at Ellett Memorial. “The additional bandwidth and circuit to our network infrastructure will ensure faster delivery of radiology department imagery without disrupting access speeds to our other critical hospital information systems, such as email and electronic health records (EHR).”
