On October 28, the Louisiana Rural Health Association (LRHA) awarded individuals and organizations who have made a long-lasting impact on the ability to receive quality healthcare in the rural communities of Louisiana. 

However, the LRHA is not the only organization that showed appreciation for the hard-working people devoted to Louisiana’s rural healthcare. Kinetix Solutions was honored to present the Excellence in Healthcare Technology Award to Hardtner Medical Center in Olla.

The ability to access quality healthcare is a growing concern for families in the small towns throughout the state. Technological advancements in medical centers play an integral role in meeting residents’ needs. Hardtner Medical Center recognizes the importance of technology in medicine and is passionate about stay up to date.

CEO Paul Matthews graciously accepted the award while paying tribute to the Kinetix team. He expressed that the business has been “instrumental in making foundational changes to our hardware and infrastructure to accomplish the advances in technology that we desired.”

Our team is honored to be able to provide Hardtner with the hardware and software tools they needed. We hope to continue to help medical centers across the state stay current in health technology. 

Other recipients of LHRA awards include:

  • Rep. Sam Jones for Rural Health Legislator of the Year
  • Union General Hospital’s Teen Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program for Outstanding Rural Health Program of the Year
