Wireless internet for patients is here!

(Saint John Area) April 6, 2016 - Horizon Health Network is pleased to announce free patient WiFi is now here! Starting today, wireless internet (WiFi) is available for all patients at the Saint John Regional Hospital, St. Joseph's Hospital and Grand Manan Hospital. WiFi is brought to our patients in partnership with the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation, and Grand Manan Hospital Foundation.                       

"Staying connected to family, friends and the outside world is a very important aspect in providing a positive patient experience," said Andrea Seymour, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Corporate for Horizon Health Network. "We are delighted to partner with our Foundations and Auxiliaries to introduce free WiFi for our patients and their families. This new service is one of the many initiatives being developed to demonstrate our continued commitment to patient and family centred care‎."

This project supports Horizon's first strategic priority - creating and sustaining a patient and family centred care environment. The wireless network is called 'WiFi - Patients' and will improve the health care experience by allowing patients to stay in touch with family and friends through website access, social media, and email.

From helping to purchase urgently needed medical equipment to enhancing patient comfort, donations to our  Foundations enrich the hospital experience for patients, families and staff, including the ability to connect with loved ones when they need it the most.

Horizon is grateful for the Foundations' continued support in providing exceptional care to every person, every day. Over the coming months, we will continue to work with our local Foundations and Auxiliaries to bring wireless internet to other Horizon facilities.
