Mount Nittany Health named Outstanding Technology Company of the Year

On Wednesday night, the Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County (CBICC) members voted Mount Nittany Health “Outstanding Technology Company of the Year” at their annual Awards Gala.
The award recognizes Mount Nittany Health’s commitment to investing in the most state-of-the-art technologies to fulfill its mission of making people healthier. “Mount Nittany Health has long been recognized for our high touch, and it’s truly an honor to be recognized for being high tech as well,” said Steve Brown, FACHE, president and CEO, as he accepted the award on behalf of Mount Nittany Health.
The CBICC specifically cited Mount Nittany Health’s use of the da Vinci® Surgical System as an example of their leadership in bringing innovative technology to the community. Since January 2012, specially trained Mount Nittany Physician Group physicians have used da Vinci robotically assisted surgery as an alternative to traditional gynecologic and urologic procedures. The patient benefits of robotically assisted surgery include shorter recovery times and a faster return to normal daily activities. To learn more, visit mountnittany.org/daVinci.
