Methodist Healthcare (San Antonio, Texas) has signed a contract for complete wireless infrastructure, software and services from Sprint (Overland Park, Kan.) and GE Healthcare (Waukesha, Wis.).

The companies say the agreement will result in a converged wireless ecosystem for six hospital sites within the Methodist Healthcare. The deployment includes GE Carescape, an integrated wireless platform that will run on more than 800 Sprint wireless phones carried by physicians, nurses and staff throughout the hospital.

Methodist Healthcare, whose 24 facilities include eight acute care hospitals, is San Antonio’s largest health care provider. The facilities offer a wide variety of services including transplant, cardiac care, oncology, behavioral health, emergency medicine, bariatrics and women’s and children’s services.
