iFiber helps connect COVID-19 vaccination site

iFiber recently worked with SwedishAmerican Health System in Rockford, IL, to establish a COVID-19 vaccination site at Loves Park City Hall. Because both entities are on the iFiber network, when SwedishAmerican requested an immediate connection between the two locations, iFiber was able to establish service within three hours.

The collaboration between Loves Park and SwedishAmerican came about through the support of Greg Jury, Mayor of Loves Park, who also is a member of SwedishAmerican’s Board of Directors. The Loves Park COVID-19 vaccination site is capable of serving 450 patients per day.

“SwedishAmerican has been extremely fortunate to partner with iFiber while setting up and running our COVID-19 vaccine site. Scheduling and documenting several hundreds of vaccinations each day is a monumental task that requires coordination in many areas. Thanks to iFiber, we’ve been able to run the clinic with extreme proficiency, which allows us to give our patients the best care possible,” said Roger Crook, President of TriRivers Health Partners, LLC, a joint I.T. venture of FHN and SwedishAmerican Health System.

iFiber is proud to have helped in the rapid response to establish this important COVID-19 vaccination site. The collaboration highlights the benefit of iFiber’s community-focused fiber initiatives and the agile emergency response capabilities the network provides.

A division of UW Health, SwedishAmerican is dedicated to providing excellence in healthcare and compassionate care to the community. The organization serves residents of 12 counties in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin through a dedicated and caring staff, a major acute care hospital and a free-standing outpatient cancer center in Rockford, a medical center in Belvidere, a network of 30 primary care and multi-specialty clinics, and one of the region’s largest home healthcare agencies.
