St. Francis Hospital in Columbus, Georgia, has selected US-based signal transmission solutions provider Belden for copper and fibre network cabling and connectivity at two new towers.

The new towers include a cardiovascular surgical unit, a cardiac centre and a women centre including new labs, pre- and post-operation bays, operating rooms, exam rooms, more than 100 additional patient beds and a 324-seat auditorium.

With Belden’s cabling solution, the towers will have a converged network for data transmission, voice communications, Wi-Fi, nurse call, baby monitoring, digital diagnostic imaging, security and building automation.

St. Francis Hospital chief information officer Charles Christian said: "As the healthcare industry continues to focus on improving the quality of patient care, we look toward technology as one way to meet the current demands being placed upon the network, all while working to future proof those investments."

"Demand for faster response and improved accuracy and availability of information will continue to grow as technology moves into supporting more of the clinical processes within the healthcare environment."

"Demand for faster response and improved accuracy and availability of information will continue to grow as technology moves into supporting more of the clinical processes within the healthcare environment," he added.

Belden’s FibreExpress multimode and singlemode fibre cabling and connectivity have been designed to support 10 gigabit per second speeds in the network backbone.

This IBDN cabling infrastructure is set to help St. Francis Hospital deliver gigabit speeds to nearly 6,000 network outlets in patient rooms, exam rooms, nurse stations, critical care areas, offices and a range of procedural spaces.

The 16 available colour varieties of the cabling system will also help the hospital visually segregate systems for easier management and maintenance.
