Detroit Medical Center (DMC) awarded a contract to Mt. Laurel, N.J.-based Medquist to provide transcription outsourcing services for Emergency Medicine documentation in six its hospitals.

MedQuist was able to preserve more than 60 Medical Transcriptionist (MT) positions from DMC’s previous supplier by hiring those MTs who were already doing the work for the healthcare system, says the company.

Detroit Medical Center is the leading academically integrated system in metropolitan Detroit and the largest health care provider in southeast Michigan. The DMC has more than 2,000 licensed beds and 3,000 affiliated physicians.
