AT&T Provides In-Building Wireless Services to Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital

PHILADELPHIA, March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) announced today the deployment of an advanced in-building wireless system to provide voice coverage and mobile broadband access for the customers at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital (Jefferson).

"Jefferson is committed to excellence in patient care," said Stephen Tranquillo, chief information officer, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. "Since communication at every level is vital to the patient care process, it was a natural step to leverage a system that allows our staff, physicians and other health care providers access to people and information."

AT&T is providing approximately 150 Palm Treos, 30 BlackBerry devices and more than 150 Push to Talk handsets, which operate on the in-building wireless system and AT&T's third-generation (3G) BroadbandConnect network, to physicians and staff members. More devices likely will be supplied for use throughout the hospital and university, and they will enable users to connect to hospital data via e-mail, sync calendar functions and search pharmaceutical or medical journal Web sites - all on AT&T's 3G network. AT&T is aggressively rolling out its 3G wireless network across the United States. The network is now available in more than 265 leading U.S. markets, with more than 80 additional cities to be added in 2008.

"AT&T is committed to providing wireless coverage and services where our customers want and need them the most," said Dan Lafond, vice president and general manager for AT&T's wireless operations in Greater Philadelphia. "Instead of using multiple devices and systems to send and receive pages, e-mail and phone calls, medical personnel now can use a single device from AT&T to access patient records from the hospital's intranet, make phone calls or keep up with e-mail both in and out of the hospital."

The in-building wireless antenna system provides coverage for AT&T's wireless customers at Jefferson, including emergency rooms, operating facilities, patient rooms and visitor areas.

Over the past three years, AT&T has invested nearly $500 million on the wireless network to enhance coverage and capacity and to expand its 3G mobile broadband network in Philadelphia, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and southern New Jersey.
