Carolinas Medical Center, flagship hospital for Carolinas HealthCare, is widely embracing wireless local area networking to improve productivity and patient safety.

To support the new applications, CHS has deployed more than 500
wireless access points for 802.11b and 802.11g networks since 2004. Two
hundred access points went into the 11-story, 1.5 million-square-foot
main hospital, and additional nodes should go in by 2006, said Craig
Richardville, vice president of information services at CHS.

While a little thin on details, the story describes applications in results reporting, VoIP wireless phones, RFID, and soon, smart pumps.
