What Was The Challenge?

1 – Southend Hospital’s IT infrastructure was reaching end-of-life

2 – New technology was needed to meet future demands from clinical services

3 – Hospital had to keep working during upgrade to protect patient care

The Point

Southend University Hospital, part of Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust, employs nearly 4,500 staff and provides a wide range of acute services, from surgical specialties and cancer treatments, through to orthopaedics and children’s services. 

However, each departments’ critical services were depending on a core IT system that was reaching end-of-life.  With vendor support ending, the hospital’s core infrastructure — and everything connected to it — was at risk.

Following meticulous planning, CAE deployed an advanced Cisco core infrastructure during a weekend in just 60 minutes. Now the hospital has the perfect infrastructure to meet future needs.
