US News Ranks Mercy Hospitals Among ‘Most Connected’

WASHINGTON — St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital in Boardman, St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital in Youngstown and St. Joseph Warren Hospital in Warren are among the “most connected hospitals” for 2015-16 by U.S. News & World Report.

The three hospitals are part of Mercy Health Youngstown, formerly Humility of Mary Health Partners.

The 159 hospitals on the list were recognized for their commitment to the use of digital technology in health care. The full list is available here.

To qualify, the health centers had to demonstrate their ability to share data with providers both within their walls and elsewhere, improve patient safety through computerization and engage patients in their care by providing them with electronic access to their own medical information.
