HP’s donation to Conway Regional includes 35 HP TouchSmart 7320 All-in-One PCs, six high-volume HP LaserJet P4515n printers and 10 HP LaserJet P2055dn printers.

The computer equipment will enable physicians and staff to stay up-to-date on the latest treatment and trends in medicine. The education room will serve as a site for continuing, professional education training for physicians and staff and will include three, PC-equipped work stations. The remaining donated equipment will be used in various locations throughout Conway Regional’s new addition.
