Rural Healthcare Provider Renews with Everstream

A community healthcare provider in rural Northern Michigan has renewed its facility’s Dedicated Internet Access with Everstream for another 5-year contract. Committed to providing superior quality care while promoting community health, this customer uses its internet connection for both employee and public Wi-Fi access across three locations.

A fiber network connection enables this customer to meet the demands of doing business while meeting the needs of its patients.

Notably, the transition to electronic health records, real-time access to diagnostic imaging and an increase in telehealth applications contribute to the healthcare industry’s unprecedented demand for bandwidth and high-speed, symmetrical connectivity.

In addition, public Wi-Fi access gives patients immediate access to online medical records and other pertinent, private information.

“Wi-Fi is now a need-to-have in healthcare facilities, both for patient care and for overall patient and visitor satisfaction,” says Bill Major, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Everstream. “A fiber infrastructure is the ideal solution to ensure networks are not overloaded or frustratingly slow.”
