Wireless Internet for patients is here for the Upper River Valley Hospital

October 20, 2016 - Horizon Health Network in partnership with the Upper River Valley Hospital Auxiliary is pleased to announce free patient WiFi is here! Starting today, wireless Internet is available for all patients at the Upper River Valley Hospital (URVH).

"Horizon's first strategic priority is to provide the best possible experience for patients while in our care," said Andrea Seymour, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Corporate for Horizon Health Network. "The Upper River Valley Hospital Auxiliary shares our passion for patient and family centred care. We are delighted to partner with them to provide wireless Internet to keep our patients connected to their loved ones when they need it the most."

The wireless network, called 'WiFi - Patients', will improve the health-care experience and allow patients to stay in touch with family and friends through website access, social media, and email.

"The Upper River Valley Hospital Auxiliary extends a huge thank you to all those who have supported bringing WiFi to the URVH," said Joanne Barrett, President of the Upper River Valley Hospital Auxiliary. "We consider it a privilege to have been able to contribute to the hospital in this way."

Seymour says Horizon is grateful for the Upper River Valley Auxiliary's support and commitment in providing exceptional care to every person, every day. Wireless internet for patients is available at certain Horizon hospitals.
