San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa, Colo., has signed a full information technology outsourcing contract with CareTech Solutions Inc., Troy, Mich.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The 57-bed hospital needed additional I.T. expertise and bench strength to become a meaningful user of information technologies, says CEO Russ Johnson.

Under the contract, CareTech is responsible for I.T. infrastructure, application management, network and server monitoring, help desk and clinician support. The hospital's seven I.T. staff members have become CareTech employees. The director of information at San Luis will oversee CareTech's work.

The hospital serves six rural counties with a population totaling about 45,000. More information is available at slvrmc.org and caretech.com.
