Catholic Health Initiatives Begins Phase Two Rollout of FacilityONE® Facility Information Solution

January 07, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), the nation's third-largest faith-based health system, has launched the second-phase rollout of the FacilityONE® Facility Information Solution (FIS) to a group of 18 hospitals in six states. Begun in September 2013, this second-phase rollout follows a successful first-phase implementation of the FIS in 19 hospitals in the Kentucky and Fargo, N.D., regions earlier in 2013.

"The enterprise-wide standardized solution drives best practices and increased efficiency throughout our organization," said Dennis Smith, Director of Facility Management at CHI.

Rick Dresselhaus, Senior Vice President of Client Services at FacilityONE, said: "We feel that FacilityONE is a dynamic contributor to CHI's goals and initiatives in Asset Management, Budgeting, Compliance and Productivity."

Since 2003, FacilityONE has partnered with the CHI-affiliated Jewish Hospital system in and around Louisville, KY. The national health system began a multi-phased, enterprise-level implementation of the FacilityONE Solution that is anticipated eventually to include all Catholic Health Initiatives member facilities.
