As one of the leading hospitals in the United Kingdom, West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is a lively, welcoming, and accessible district general hospital located in Bury St. Edmunds, England. With more than 430 beds, the hospital is equipped to serve a population of 275,000. The hospital recently implemented its new “e-Care” electronic patient record system, which has been adopted by staff across all sites and provided an integrated clinical information structure designed to support all clinical pathways.
