Wireless internet for patients is here!

(Miramichi) April 6, 2016 - Horizon Health Network in partnership with the Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce free patient WiFi is now here! Starting today, wireless internet is available for all patients at the Miramichi Regional Hospital.

"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 and allow patients to stay in touch with family and friends through website access, social media, and email.

"The Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation is delighted that wireless service is now available. This important service provides additional comfort and benefits to patients and their families during their time here", said Belinda Thebeau, Chairperson, Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation. "The Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation is pleased to be a part of this project and continues, with your help, in its efforts to offer local enhanced services to Miramichi and area patients."

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