Wireless Internet for patients is here!

(Horizon) October 26, 2017 - Horizon Health Network in partnership with Hotel Dieu of St. Joseph Foundation is pleased to announce free patient WiFi is now here! Starting today, wireless Internet is available for all patients at the Hotel-Dieu of St. Joseph.

 

"We are delighted to partner with the Hotel Dieu of St. Joseph Foundation to introduce free WiFi for our Perth Andover area patients and their families," said Andrea Seymour, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Corporate for Horizon Health Network. "Helping our patients have a positive experience during their time with us is very important, and we know keeping them connected to their family and friends will have a significant impact on their well-being."

 

WiFi is now available for patients to use in all hospitals within Horizon. The wireless network, 'WiFi - Patients', improves the health care experience by allowing patients to stay in touch with family and friends through website access, social media, and email.

 

"The Perth-Andover Hotel Dieu Foundation is very pleased to have been able to partner with Horizon Health Network for the WiFi project," said Joy VanTassel, Chair of the Hotel Dieu of Saint Joseph Foundation. "We live in an age of technology and people have come to expect having access to the Internet. Now both inpatients and outpatients will be able to connect with loved ones whether they are around the corner or around the globe."

 

Horizon is grateful for the Foundation's support in making this project possible. More information about wireless Internet and availability can be found on www.HorizonNB.ca/WiFi . For more information about the Foundation please visit www.hdsjf.ca .
