The Ensign Group Selects Aruba Networks WLAN To Enable High Quality Care, Enriched Experience For Patients And Residents

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, today announced that Ensign Services, Inc., which provides back office services to operating subsidiaries of The Ensign Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENSG) and other healthcare companies, has standardized on Aruba’s wireless LAN infrastructure to offer an enhanced healthcare experience and ensure high quality care for its clients’ patients and residents. Ensign is using both Aruba’s controller-based WLAN and popular Aruba Instant controller-less solutions to deliver reliable, high-performance wireless connectivity across more than 130 operating locations, including skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, hospice companies, home health businesses and urgent care clinics in eleven states.

Ensign Services began evaluating wireless networking solutions to bolster patient care and internal operations for its client healthcare facilities, as well as deliver wireless access to its patients and healthcare residents. From the operational side, Ensign wanted to move to Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and enable the use of clinical applications software like Point Click Care. In addition, to improve the overall experience for its clients’ residents and patients, the company wanted to offer wireless access to the Internet, email and other applications and services, as well as to gaming systems like Wii that are used for both recreational and rehabilitative purposes.

After evaluating solutions from Cisco, Aerohive and Aruba, Ensign selected Aruba, deploying a combination of controller-based and controller-less products. To date, Ensign has installed 100 Aruba mobility controllers and 800 Aruba 135 and 105 Series access points in its clients’ skilled nursing facilities and 50 Aruba Instant access points in its homecare and urgent care businesses. According to Ryan Rushton, Director of IT for Ensign Services, Aruba’s focus on wireless technology, its price-performance advantages and strong technical support staff were all key factors in the organization’s selection of Aruba.
