Union Hospital is really wired, and that's a good thing. For the fifth consecutive year, Union Hospitals in Terre Haute and Clinton have earned top honors in the Most Wired survey.

Hospitals and Health Networks Magazine hands out the honors. It's a recognition for health systems doing a good job with information technology. Union's Systems Director Tiffany Bennett said, "We want to continue to excel and with our technology and continue to be on the leading edge."

The hospital uses technology in a variety of ways, including sharing patient information among specialists and other care givers. They also track data that could improve and lower the cost of care.

Union CEO Steve Holman said, "This national distinction shows the commitment our physicians, nurses, IT teams and staff have to using electronic technology to its fullest in providing safe, quality care to our patients."
