Liverpool Hospital

Liverpool Hospital
Industry: Healthcare
Country: Australia

Liverpool Hospital is undergoing a major redevelopment project to meet the needs of a growing population, and to ensure it can provide up-to-date healthcare services. As part of this project, it needed to procure a new network that would be reliable, enable fast access to high-resolution diagnostic images, and provide wireless access to medical data.


  • Support critical healthcare applications as well as communications and security infrastructure 
  • Standardize and refine real-time communications to allow clinicians to work efficiently, freeing them to spend as much time as possible caring for patients
  • Implement a state-of-the-art network infrastructure for both voice and data communications, including ubiquitous, fixed and wireless access to clinical applications for staff throughout the campus




  • The network seamlessly connects users and systems across the hospital campus, across departments, and with independent organizations
  • Reliable and secure access to electronic medical records wherever and  whenever needed, at nurses’ stations or on the move with smart devices
  • Staff are able to access to the information they need to make the best decisions for patients, improving communication and workflow, and reducing errors
  • Single-vendor solution for network and communications leads to an overall successful implementation

"Alcatel-Lucent provided an end-to-end system that meets our needs today, and can grow along with us as our requirements evolve. Having a very reliable high-speed network has really contributed to our ability to provide better patient care."

— Nick van Domburg, Chief Information Officer, Liverpool Hospital
