“Building a world-class data center is essential for the future of Dartmouth-Hitchcock,” stated Martin C. Purcell, Vice President for IS Operations at D-H. “The team at LEDG provided an unmatched collaborative approach to help the entire team meet our goals on a day-to-day basis.”
Patient rooms of the future, digital health, and Internet of Things (IoT) along with continued collaborations and affiliations will continue to increase the demand for fast, reliable computing no matter the data is generated. Today, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock information technology team and the new data center infrastructure is poised for what the future of healthcare holds for the organization.
