NEC Australia has announced plans to install digital technologies at the new Footscray Hospital in Victoria.

Technologies such as CISCO networking, telephony systems facility, security, and data centre infrastructure will help the hospital deliver solutions that improve patient care and operational efficiency.

The latest wireless network technologies will also support real time location service and enhance patient connectivity.

The new Footscray Hospital will have more than 500 inpatient beds and treat nearly 15,000 additional patients every year.

It will also provide employment opportunities for the locals, improve patient outcomes as well as reduce wait times of patients.

Emergency departments of the hospital are expected to accommodate 20,000 more people each year.
