The Results

WP Electric had estimated that the CHOC project would take six months from initial site survey to complete installation. In reality, they would finish the job an entire month ahead of schedule.

By installing a WilsonPro solution instead of an Active DAS system, CHOC also benefited from a cost savings of 80 percent. However, the ultimate test would be the improvement (if any) of cell signal coverage across the CHOC campus. All that remained was the system’s one-time turn on.

To the excitement of all around, the difference in cellular connectivity was noticed right away.

Employees were overjoyed to receive text messages while sitting at their desks; an occurrence for some which had never happened before the WilsonPro installation. Others took immediate notice when they got a signal in areas of the hospital where they never expected service before.

Amazingly, some even streamed video in areas of the building that had zero cell signal before. For a hospital like CHOC, the importance of cellular connectivity was always about the patients.

“This new (WilsonPro) cellular system will not only save lives, but it will also keep families close together. They won’t have to go far to make cellular phone calls and doctors will be able to get information to patients quicker,” Trimble explains. “With Wilson’s technology, it’s a one-stop shop. You flip the switch and it works. It’s why Wilson is our number one manufacturer today.”

Wilson has also made a lasting impression with CHOC’s Chief Technology Officer, Adam Gold.

“I think we’ve made our customers happy, that being the patients. And I think we’ve made our associates happy, those being the clinicians. I definitely think we’ve seen a difference and I’m really happy with the way it turned out,” said Gold.
