ATLANTA--(Business Wire)--
Wandering WiFi, a leader in providing secure public and private wireless
technology solutions, announced today that Proctor Hospital has successfully
implemented Wandering WiFi`s wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) service for its public
wireless networks throughout its main Peoria, Ill. hospital campus, including
portions of an adjoining physicians` office building. The public network
provides hospital visitors and patients with complimentary wireless Internet
access. 

"We already had a wireless infrastructure in place for our private network. We
wanted to leverage that existing infrastructure to offer a service to our
customers," said Jennifer Clyatt, administrative director for Health Informatics
and Technology for Proctor Hospital. "Superior customer service was key in
providing this service. We needed to be able to offer our patients and their
visitors 24/7 support, 365 days a year. Wandering WiFi provided that expertise
and got us up and running with our public network in less than 60 days.
Considering the value-add and the number of people using the system, the cost
was very reasonable and the service has been great." 

Wandering WiFi`s service also provides Proctor with the ability to force users
to agree to terms and conditions when accessing the Internet, and offers added
content-filtering and blocking options at the hospital`s request. "As a
healthcare organization and leader in the community, we felt blocking and
filtering content from inappropriate websites was the responsible thing to do
for our customers," says Clyatt. Proctor has the additional benefit of
customized branding, usage controls and bandwidth management to distinguish the
service for its own hospital visitors. 

"We will continue to develop applications and services dedicated to the needs of
professionals in the healthcare industry," said John Marshall, CEO of Wandering
WiFi. "As the culture continues to embrace advancements in technology and
security, it`s great to see more healthcare providers offer benefits of public
and private wireless solutions to their visitors and employees."
