The “information super highway” project will heighten patient safety and ensure privacy by connecting Memorial Healthcare to its 12 off-campus health care facilities at the speed of light. Now more physicians, hospitals and patients will have the fastest, most state-of-the-art technology in the world regardless of their location. This will also allow businesses throughout the community to connect to the fiber optic internet service that was previously not available.
