Henderson County Community Hospital Welcomes New Innovative Technology
HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. - Braden Health helps restore rural hospitals and is now a part of the Henderson County community hospital.
With this Starlink technology is also now improving the quality of healthcare the hospital can provide.
Starlink Technology is a satellite internet constellation operated by SpaceX.
This provides satellite internet access coverage all over the world and is now here at our local hospitals.
For the Henderson County community hospital, this means internet network connectivity, enhanced emergency response, and cost efficiency.
What this means for the Henderson County community is easier access to emergency and daily healthcare.
It is reported many rural residents find themselves having to drive 40 minutes to an hour to hospitals in Jackson, and many times every minute counts.
With higher and more advanced technology coming to smaller hospitals, this can help rural communities in times of emergencies.
Braden Health reports this technology is set to restore how rural hospitals handle internet connectivity, especially during disaster-related inconveniences that can affect essential services.
Starting now, the Henderson County hospital is in the beginning phases of using the new technology and observing its results to better serve the Henderson County community.
