The Winchester Medical Center has been named one of the top 100 most wired hospitals in the nation by Hospitals and Health Networks magazine.
It's the fourth consecutive year the facility has made the list.
The ranking is based on a number of criteria and the magazine says those hospitals that are the most technologically advanced typically offer a higher quality of care.
According to the magazine, the Winchester Medical Center has an elaborate computer system that provides better efficiency for a number of tasks such as gathering information for patients being admitted at their bedside through the use of a wireless computer network.
