This 340-bed hospital in Southeast Texas implemented BedWatch Bed Control in January 2014 as part of a system-wide effort to improve throughput performance.

Since implementation, the hospital staff has successfully reduced average bed turnover time by 77%, despite an increase in average daily discharges.

The hospital was running an average bed turnover time of 188 minutes during implementation in January, and the EVS team was able to cut that number in half by the following month using BedWatch.
