El Camino Hospital, in Mountain View, Calif., has selected

InnerWireless’ Horizon to deploy at its new 300-bed hospital in an effort to provide wireless connectivity and coverage for mission- and life-critical applications.

According to InnerWireless (Richardson, Texas), Horizon converges WWAN and WLAN services including cellular/PCS, 802.11 a/b/g/n, WMTS, pagers and two-way radios. The solution can also keep mobile staff and clinicians continuously connected to the hospital’s main HIS, enabling them to access patient information at all times, says the company.

El Camino Hospital plans to open in the second half of 2009, with the 460,000-square-foot facility delivering a broad range of wireless services to clinicians, staff, and patients.
