BOULDER, Colo. -- SpectraLink Corp. (NASDAQ:SLNK) , through the SBC family of companies, is helping Mission Community Hospital improve patient care with its NetLink(TM) i640 Wireless Telephones. The recently built 150-bed hospital in Panorama City, Calif., installed SpectraLink(R) NetLink Wireless Telephones in its nursing and patient care areas to help nursing staff maintain immediate and direct contact with hospital physicians regardless of location.

Working through SBC companies, Mission Community Hospital installed 28 NetLink handsets in late 2004. The NetLink i640 Wireless Telephones offer nursing staff complete mobility while keeping them accessible to patients, physicians and others. Caregivers are now more responsive and efficient in meeting patient needs. The NetLink i640 Wireless Telephones also offer a unique push-to-talk (PTT) functionality that offers hospital staff an added sense of security by letting them broadcast to multiple handsets during emergency situations. Leveraging the hospital's existing Wi-Fi network, the NetLink i640 Wireless Telephones operate at low power levels minimizing risk of interference with sensitive medical equipment.

"The NetLink handsets are expected to help us save time and result in improved service to our patients," said Dr. Robert Thompson, the hospital's vice chief of staff and a pulmonary medicine physician. "With the new handsets, we expect much greater efficiencies in our process for the administration of both medications and necessary tests."
