Marking the 20th Anniversary of the Dialysis Unit

Woodstock Hospital’s Dialysis Unit opened in August of 1997. Woodstock Hospital Dialysis Unit is a satellite unit out of the London Health Sciences Centre, allowing patients to receive treatment in their own community while still having access to the entire renal team.

Integrating EHR on Bedside Monitors

Woodstock Hospital was the first regional hospital in Canada to go live with an interface that collects patient data from the vital signs monitor to the Cerner electronic health record (EHR). The interface will be integrated into other areas of the hospital, with capabilities to connect to other equipment such as infusion pumps and ventilators.
