Philadelphia-metro’s Glen Mills School has yet to receive its first patients during the Covid-19 crisis, but those working and recuperating at the site will have an essential service to assist in care thanks to the high-speed network access made available by Pennsylvania's Rajant Corporation and state senator Tom Killion.

“Robust data service is critical to providing timely and effective care,” said Tim Boyce, director of emergency services for Delaware County, which has responsibility for coordinating the build-out of the 85,000 square foot facility. “Rajant’s contribution of its Kinetic Mesh solution and its installation ensures the nurses, doctors, and techs who will be treating patients will be able to use the technology to which they’ve become accustomed to deliver care.”
