Farmington Hills, Mich., March 5, 2008 -- Beginning today, free Wi-Fi service will be available at Botsford Hospital. The service is available in three hospital locations:
Customers must bring their own computers or handhelds that contain a Wi-Fi card. Users will need to troubleshoot their own devices. When a user logs onto the Wi-Fi network, an access agreement will be presented. Upon accepting the agreement’s terms, the user would then be directed to Botsford Hospital’s Web site (www.botsford.org). A filter will prevent access to what the hospital considers inappropriate content.
Remaining competitive in the area’s health care marketplace gave the hospital the impetus for installing this service. It is a low-cost investment, which allows Botsford visitors to keep in communication with family and friends, to keep up with their work projects, or just to help pass the time while they wait for their loved ones who are patients at the Farmington Hills hospital.
Botsford Hospital, a 330-bed community hospital in Farmington Hills, Mich., was founded in 1965. Nationally recognized for quality, safety and medical education programs, Botsford received the 2006 Governor’s Award for Improving Patient Safety and Quality of Care in the Hospital Setting and, in 2007, a three-year recertification as a Chest Pain Center from the Society of Chest Pain Centers. Botsford’s web address is www.botsford.org.
