Missouri hospital to rebrand, transition to Epic

Cape Girardeau, Mo.-based SoutheastHealth will be renamed and transition to an Epic EHR system as it enters into an affiliation with St. Louis-based Mercy, Southeast Missourian reported Aug. 2. 

On Aug. 1, the health systems signed a contract to merge, pending customary closing conditions and third-party approvals. 

Under the agreement, SoutheastHealth will be renamed, most likely to Mercy Southeast, according to Ken Bateman, SoutheastHealth's president and CEO. 

SoutheastHealth will also get a new IT system and a medical records system. 

"The intent is to put us on the Epic electronic medical records. That will be a huge lift for them to implement, but it will be a huge benefit for our clinical team," Mr. Bateman said.
