St. Joseph Hospital (SJH), a community hospital located in Nashua, N.H., has selected Barrington, Ill.-based GE Healthcare’s Centricity system for its EMR.

Centricity EMR version 9.0 will be rolled out across the organization, replacing several other EMR systems, says the company. SJH expects to accelerate the clinical and financial benefits of full EMR adoption through this integrated, single vendor approach, it adds.

St. Joseph Hospital is southern New Hampshire’s largest acute care hospital and trauma center. Its physicians are employed across 19 locations practicing family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, pulmonary medicine and oncology. The hospital is part of St. Joseph Healthcare, a regional, full-service healthcare system serving the Greater Nashua area, western New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.
