Palmerston North Hospital now offers unlimited free WiFi allowing patients and visitors to connect their mobile devices to the internet for however long they want.
The broadband data is courtesy of local internet service provider InspireNet, which has supplied the hospital with WiFi since late 2011.
InspireNet founder James Watts says working with MidCentral DHB they decided to make it unlimited free WiFi at the hospital - part of their sponsorship to contribute to the well being of the region Mid Central DHB’s Chief Information Officer Steve Miller says providing reliable and fast broadband WiFi at the hospital offers more than just convenience.
He says WiFi helps many of our staff in their day-to-day work, which contributes to delivering efficient healthcare services. But there is no doubt the unlimited free WiFi will be of great value for our patients.
