Evans Army Community Hospital faces the same threats to operations as any community hospital throughout the United States. Emergencies ranging from active shooters, extreme weather conditions and other man-made and natural disasters require fast and reliable notification of personnel to avoid injury or death in these situations. Evans was faced with a situation requiring a fast implementation of their existing notification system and chose AtHoc because of its rapid implementation cycle. From contract award to system availability only required three days to meet their unique need for an expedition implementation to ensure no gap in service. 

"Evans Community Hospital joins such prestigious military medical facilities as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, San Diego Navy Regional Medical Center, Darnell Army Medical Center, and others protecting their patient and staff against threats," said Dave Brown, AtHoc's Vice President of Defense and Intelligence Group. "We are proud to add these military healthcare organizations to the more than 2 million other Army, Marine, Navy and Air Force personnel already protected by AtHoc's solution world-wide."

"Evans faced a unique time constraint to continue providing for the safety of their patients and personnel," said Dave Acevedo, Director of Army Operations for AtHoc. "The flexibility of our deployment methodology allowed us to standup a solution to meet their need without a gap in service proofing once again that we lead the way in execution of both technology and service in the area of life safety."
