Mason General Hospital (MGH) is a 25-bed critical access hospital located in Shelton, WA. Receiving the status of "Most Wired -Rural" hospital in 2008 and 2009, MGH in 2011 was named one of the nation's "Most Wired" hospitals by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. Although a rural hospital, and perhaps "small" by big city standards, MGH has been successfully providing its staff, providers and clinicians with cutting edge, best practice technological tools for several years.

Perhaps one of the key's to MGH's success is the creation in 2006 of the role of director of clinical informatics. Originally the role reported jointly to the chief administrative officer (CAO), Eric Moll and the chief operations officer (COO), Eileen Branscome, MBA, RN.
