SPRINGFIELD, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 13, 2016--
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:
SPOK) and the global leader in enterprise critical communications, today
announced that Medical Center Hospital in Odessa, Texas, is effectively
supporting the hospital's growing clinical communications needs by
expanding its relationship with Spok’s comprehensive enterprise
solution. A Spok customer for more than 20 years, the hospital is
building on its Spok Care Connect® suite through a multi-phase rollout
to integrate the latest technologies and devices that support efficiency
for their clinicians.
Beginning with Spok’s operator
console solution, the implementation will continue with secure
directory, and clinical
alerting—all integrated to strengthen communications throughout the
hospital. The ongoing goal is to simplify workflow communications as the
organization grows for better staff efficiency and improved patient care.
“What we needed was an enterprise solution that would meet everyone’s
needs, reduce overall cost, and cut down on maintenance redundancy,”
said Gary Barnes, senior vice president and chief information officer
for Medical Center Hospital.
Medical Center Hospital is a 402-bed teaching facility that serves more
than 100,000 patients annually. Hoping to find ways to achieve more
effective clinical communications, the team approached Spok for

maintaining numerous systems, such as multiple databases, physician
on-call lists, employee contact information, and schedules,” said
Barnes. “We achieved our objective with Spok.”
