The Network’s Hospital Library Circuit Rider Program was initiated in 1985 with the goal of providing relevant and timely medical information for doctors, nurses, and other health care providers in the region.

Currently sited at the Samaritan Medical Center Hospital Library in Watertown, the Circuit Rider Medical Information Program provides research and information services to eight participating hospital staffs through a combination of site visits, phone consultations, emails, and current awareness lists.

The program typically delivers approximately 225 site visits, 10,000 medical research documents and 1800 literature searches annually.
