Maimonides, a not-for-profit independent teaching hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., has selected Verizon Business to design and deploy an optical network connecting the medical center's main campus buildings and 24 remote locations throughout Brooklyn.

The new network, which the hospital began to transition to in March, provides physicians at Maimonides and affiliated institutions with complete patient medical histories, including doctors' orders, prescriptions, lab results and radiology films.

The new Maimonides network will also serve as the foundation for the Brooklyn Health Information Exchange (BHIE), a regional healthcare network scheduled for launch in 2008. Maimonides received a $4 million grant from the state of New York to create BHIE.
