InnerWireless unplugs NIH's Clinical Center
InnerWireless Inc. will be installing its broadband wireless distribution platform in the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center Clinical Research Center (CRC) in Bethesda, Md.
The wireless network will enable physicians and medical staff at the 870,000 square foot, 242-bed medical center to utilize wireless interpersonal communications devices. In addition, the NIH said it plans to expand the use of the system to empower wireless medical telemetry devices, pagers, 802.11 wireless data and two-way radios for first responder communications.
InnerWireless said it is a subcontractor on the project to prime contractor SRA International Inc. of Fairfax, Va. SRA was awarded the contract under the Chief Information Officer Solutions and Partners 2 Innovations (CIO-SP2i) contract.  
The new Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center is connected to the existing Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center, and the two buildings form the NIH Clinical Center.
