Vancouver Clinic enhances their Patient Care embracing IoT


Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company (NYSE: HPE), today announced that Vancouver Clinic has deployed Aruba’s mobile-first network with ArubaOS 8 to deliver secure mobility. The network will help doctors and nurses become more efficient and deliver higher quality patient care in Vancouver Clinic’s seven regional locations and new neighborhood clinics.

Founded in 1936, Vancouver Clinic provides high-quality private healthcare, urgent care facilities, and regional and neighborhood clinics to patients across the Southern Washington area. Its existing network was unable to support the requirements of a mobile-first healthcare environment.

“Our outdated infrastructure made it difficult to add modern healthcare services and deliver reliable connectivity for staff, nurses, and doctors to access patient records and utilize medical devices,” said Eric Davis, IT Infrastructure Architect, Vancouver Clinic.

Working with leading solutions provider Structured, Vancouver Clinic deployed Aruba Access Points and Mobility Controllers, Access Switches, AirWave for network management and visibility, and ClearPass for full wireless and wired Network Access Control (NAC). These solutions help manage and secure the infrastructure for all locations from a central point of control.

Aruba’s ArubaOS 8 was also a key factor in Vancouver Clinic’s decision to select Aruba. With Mobility Master, which has the ability to do hierarchical folders and clustered controllers, the Clinic can perform live network upgrades without interrupting connectivity for staff, nurses, and physicians.
