Cellular DAS Solutions for Hospitals and Medical Science Facilities
Lifesaving decisions are being made constantly in the corridors, conference rooms, offices, and patient suites of large medical centers. Smartphones and tablets display critical data, voice, text, and email messages that support those decisions. Updates in real time are especially important to patients and their families. A strong, consistently reliable cellular signal is essential to high quality care and treatment.
Medical laboratories and scientific research facilities are also data-driven, and require constant connectivity. The timing of critical research and experiments depends on being able to communicate with researchers and their teams.
All these types of facilities are constructed of concrete materials and steel beams that block the passage of cellular signals. No matter how close the cell tower or how new the cellular device, in hospitals and medical facilities, weak or spotty cell service is often the norm, rather than the exception.
The Powerful Signal Solution
A custom-designed cellular distributed antenna system (DAS) from Powerful Signal ensures that vital communication links between caregivers and patients, administrators and staff, and researchers and their staff remains strong and fully-operative, day and night.
Our cell signal amplification systems are scalable and modular: If one floor or wing of your building is a particular concern, we can start there, and then expand to other areas as and when needed. Powerful Signal's design experts will take the time to understand the full scope of your problem, and then configure a system using the best non-proprietary, FCC-certified components available. With our considerable experience and know-how, you can be confident that you'll get the right solution, delivered within your schedule and your budget.
Enabling Your Critical Communication
Many hospitals, medical facilities, and laboratories around the United States have already experienced the difference our systems can make in their critical functions. Powerful Signal can help you eliminate the complication of dropped calls and lost or delayed information.

Our Projects: Hospitals and Medical Science Facilities
Here is a just a sample of the projects Powerful Signal has completed for hospitals, medical centers, and laboratories.
Projects vary by size and complexity; some cover the entire building, a single floor, or just a specific problem area.
Powerful Signal respects the privacy of our large corporate customers and does not publish their names.
Clinical Research Center (120,000 ft²)
A clinical research center in Ohio needed improved cellular signal in three buildings they were constructing in a campus facility. The first building had four floors and approximately 120,000 square feet of floor space. Powerful Signal designed a 4G/3G cellular DAS system on time and budget; cellular communications were improved to provide a strong, reliable signal for doctors, staff, and patients.
Cellular amplification systems were installed in the other two buildings several months later. Powerful Signal's scalable and modularized systems allowed this facility to implement their complete system on a schedule determined by the project team.
Large Medical Company Corporate Headquarters (77,200 ft²)
A division of a global company needed 4G and 3G voice and data improved on a 77,200 square-foot floor in their California corporate headquarters. Powerful Signal designed a five-band cellular DAS system that was implemented by a local contractor chosen by the company.
Regional Medical Center (135,000 ft²)
A regional medical center in Idaho needed to improve voice and data signal in their operating rooms and recovery areas. Powerful Signal designed a system that met their needs and provided qualified installers to complete the job. As the project progressed, additional areas were added, including the NICU.
Clinical Research Center (60,000 ft²)
This customer first implemented a multi-floor cellular DAS system, and then returned to Powerful Signal for a second multi-floor system for another testing facility. The second system addressed two floors where doctors, staff, and patients could not make or receive calls. Powerful Signal designed and implemented a five-band system that covered all frequencies and carriers for voice, text, and 4G/3G data.
Primary Care Center (86,700 ft²)
A multi-floor primary care center in Alaska needed to improve 4G LTE and 3G service for AT&T. Neither staff nor patients could use their cell phones or tablets inside the facility due to dense materials used in the construction of the building. Powerful Signal addressed their need with a custom-designed system that covered AT&T's frequencies and the frequencies of all other major carriers. A local contractor implemented the system under the direction of Powerful Signal.
Clinical Research Center (135,750 ft²)
A clinical research facility in Ohio needed to improve voice and data communications in a new, multi-story medical office and testing facility. Powerful Signal designed a system that was installed by a local contractor. All four floors of the research center now enjoy strong cellular data and voice signal.
Family Health Center (70,000 ft²)
A large family health center in Texas needed improved cell signal. Powerful Signal designed a multi-zone cellular DAS system and implemented it on two floors, covering around 70,000 square feet.
General Surgery Facility (40,100 ft² in 2 Buildings, 2 Critical Areas)
A general surgery facility in Ohio required cell signal improvement in two different buildings. Powerful Signal designed and installed a cellular amplification system for a conference room and office area in one building, and a second system in the surgery area of another building. The surgery area was 25,100 square feet and the conference and office areas were nearly 20,000 square feet. This is an example of our ability to design cellular DAS systems for specific critical areas with maximum performance.
Medical Center (25,000 ft²)
Powerful Signal designed and implemented a cellular DAS system in a medical center in West Virginia. This system was for a single floor, covering 25,000 square feet.
