Fixed-Mobile Convenience Solutions from Siemens to Give Hospital Staff
Greater Productivity, Collaboration and Responsiveness
BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Efficient, effective and highly responsive patient care is the primary architectural design goal for the all-new, soon-to-open McCune-Brooks Hospital in Carthage, Mo. To fully achieve this objective, the hospital prescribed for itself a secure, highly reliable IP-based wireless voice and data communications solution from Siemens Communications, Inc. in collaboration with Siemens Building Technologies.
For nearly 80 years, McCune-Brooks Hospital has served the surrounding five-county, mostly rural area almost 300 miles southwest of St. Louis, Mo. Its new facility will feature sun-filled, all-private rooms to promote individualized patient care, with an emphasis on women's health and maternity needs. It aims to provide the community with advanced, state-of-the-art healthcare rivaling that of big-city hospitals, while also attracting a highly skilled nursing and physician staff interested in a rural lifestyle and healthcare delivery.
In designing their new space, McCune-Brooks realized that its communications capabilities will play a vital role in delivering the high- quality, healthcare services it intends to offer. That's why it chose to deploy a wireless LAN (WLAN)-based voice/data infrastructure throughout the hospital via the Siemens HiPath Wireless mobile communications platform.
"The HiPath Wireless solution will give us pervasive Wi-Fi access
everywhere in the hospital, so nurses, doctors and other medical personnel
can access patient information and each other more quickly to help resolve
patient issues faster and more effectively," said Bob Fitzpatrick, Support
Services Director, McCune-
