“We are excited to tell our story to help other long-term care providers better understand how Wi-Fi solutions, especially Aerohive’s technology, can improve their facilities,” said Chris Fadrowski, senior director of IT infrastructure for Brookdale Senior Living. “Aerohive’s controller-less solution has allowed us to provide powerful Wi-Fi without the cost, performance and availability issues associated with controller-based deployments. When we evaluated competitive enterprise wireless networks, we found Aerohive to be much more innovative than the others.”
“Having reliable Wi-Fi is a must for any health care facility,” said Shawn O’Malley, project manager of engineering for Skilled Healthcare. “Particularly in long-term care facilities, employees need wireless for accessing electronic medical records to provide bedside care and visiting doctors require reliable wireless access to efficiently and effectively do their jobs. It’s also extremely important for our patients that want to communicate with their families through email, chat and video. Choosing the right WLAN is crucial for our business to provide the best patient care possible and give our facility a competitive edge over others.”
