The Ascension Health Care St. Clare Hospital in Weston, Wi needed to enhance its critical care services. This required building expansion and an upgrade to their cabling infrastructure.
The Ascension Health Care organization, that serves many areas in North Central Wisconsin, is expanding their Weston, Wi hospital to enhance their critical care services. CC&N was awarded the cabling installation of the project by Ascension’s general contractor. The ICU Tower expansion involved a 4-story addition to their in-patient critical care services, including the Intensive Care Unit.
CC&N installed copper cabling infrastructure and 12 strands of single mode primary and redundant fiber optic cable and added 8 new telecom closets. 1,200 feet non-typical runs of 24 individual fiber strands were installed during the expansion while working around operating patient services during the implementation. CC&N also supplied the connectivity for their Access Control systems.
For Ascension’s ICU Tower, the ability to add more critical care beds and provide a more state-of-the-art care enables them to raise the patients’ experience to a new level.
