SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that Catholic Health System, a non-profit healthcare system that provides medical services to Western New Yorkers across numerous care centers and hospitals, has deployed Juniper Networks data center solutions to support mission-critical healthcare applications.
With approximately 1,000 acute care beds and 8,600 employees catering to acute care, primary care, long-term care, and lab and rehab services across 14 sites, Catholic Health required a reliable and secure, high-capacity network to support its electronic medical records (EMR) and medical imaging systems. Facing an aging legacy network and a flat budget, Catholic Health turned to Juniper for a cost-effective, easy-to-manage solution that could accommodate the organization's growing use of EMR without negatively impacting the performance and availability of other critical healthcare applications. After a rigorous competitive evaluation, Catholic Health chose Juniper Networks based on its ability to greatly simplify the configuration and management of the network, enabling Catholic Health to deliver technology-enabled patient care through high-IQ networks.
Catholic Health implemented Juniper Networks® MetaFabric, an open standards-based architecture for next-generation data centers, to deliver unparalleled levels of patient care in a simple, secure and flexible way.
"At Catholic Health, our mission is to provide our patients with a positive patient care experience. Technology is a huge enabler of better care. By providing our staff with an easily adaptable and agile network, we are allowing for our patients to receive pinpointed and effective healthcare. As a top 100 integrated healthcare system, Catholic Health is proud of the opportunities and advancements we are able to bring to healthcare through effective technology."
-Pete Capelli, vice president of IT for network and infrastructure, Catholic Health
"The healthcare industry is facing significant challenges with implementing EMR and PAC apps and supporting BYOD on aging legacy networks. By employing the principles of Juniper's MetaFabric architecture, Catholic Health is able to realize the benefits of a comprehensive data center solution that seamlessly integrates core and edge switching with security to allow it to deliver an unparalleled user experience every time."
-Mike Marcellin, senior vice president of Strategy and Marketing, Juniper Networks
