As one of the leading hospitals in the United Kingdom, West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is a lively, welcoming, and accessible district general hospital located in Bury St. Edmunds, England. With more than 430 beds, the hospital is equipped to serve a population of 275,000.

The hospital recently implemented its new “e-Care” electronic patient record system, which has been adopted by staff across all sites and provided an integrated clinical information structure designed to support all clinical pathways. A major part of the new ePR was the introduction of an additional 200 devices across all clinical areas of the Hospital. To support the new e-Care applications and to provide the network with the required reliability and security, West Suffolk Hospital chose Extreme Networks to upgrade the entire network.
