Microsoft Corp. today announced that Memphis, Tenn.-based Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare has completed its migration to Microsoft’s technology platform — including Windows Server 2003 Active Directory and Systems Management Server 2003 — helping the third-largest privately held hospital system in the United States simplify its IT infrastructure and save money.
Methodist is an integrated healthcare delivery system employing more than 10,000 associates and admitting over 63,000 patients per year. Previously, the healthcare system had operated in a Novell-based environment. It migrated to Microsoft’s platform to help lower its IT costs and decrease complexity in its environment. By putting Microsoft software in place, Methodist can better manage its core infrastructure capabilities — such as administering groups, deploying desktops and managing permissions — as well as lower its overall IT costs.
