Wilcon, the leading West Coast provider of fiber-optic and data center infrastructure, today announced that it has been selected by Palomar Health to create an ultra-broadband fiber ring between the Escondido-based company’s medical centers. Three medical centers in North San Diego County will now have the high-speed data network they need to meet the expanding technological demands of the healthcare industry.
“It’s a pleasure to announce Wilcon’s part in the expansion of Palomar Health’s data connectivity,” said Jon DeLuca, CEO of Wilcon. “We’re dedicated to supporting the healthcare field in Southern California, and this new project exemplifies our commitment to meeting the primary IT needs of hospitals throughout the region.”
“When we sought out a partner to work with for network needs, we knew Wilcon would deliver,” said Prudence August, VP of Information Systems for Palomar Health. “This is a relationship that will continue to grow as our needs continue to expand.”
To successfully link Palomar’s sites together, Wilcon is partnering with San Diego-based AIS Data Centers. The new fiber optic ring will connect Palomar Medical Center, Palomar Health Downtown Campus, Pomerado Hospital and AIS with a high-speed Ethernet network.
“We’re honored to partner with Wilcon and support Palomar Health’s newest technological endeavor,” said Greg Rollet, CEO for AIS. “Integrated collaborations like this are essential when looking to help meet the goals of a thriving hospital network like Palomar.”
