Bath Community Hospital of Hot Springs, Va. has selected San Diego-based DR Systems’ PACS. According to the company, the product will permit the Virginia hospital to have a local radiological workflow even as most of its radiological studies are read at the University of Virginia (UVA) Medical Center, in Charlottesville. In addition, it says, the PACS implementation will enable Bath to more easily share images and reports with UVA and other regional partners.

The company claims its PACS product will improve the hospital’s acute stroke response by giving Bath County residents reliable and timely access to stroke treatment expertise across the Central Shenandoah Valley.

Bath Community Hospital is a 25-bed facility, is located in a remote area of western Virginia. As a designated Critical Access Hospital, it provides frontline medical services for the 4,800 residents of Bath County.
