University of Kansas Hospital Selects LightEdge Kansas City Data Center
The University of Kansas Hospital Selected LightEdge Data Center at SubTropolis Technology Center for Hospital IT Production Facility
KANSAS CITY, MO – March 9, 2016 – LightEdge Solutions is pleased to announce that The University of Kansas Hospital has officially moved into their private suite at the LightEdge data center facility located in the SubTropolis Technology Center. As a healthcare provider committed to the most stringent patient information protection, LightEdge’s ability to demonstrate HIPAA certified staff, SSAE certification, ISO 27001 defined process management, and other key certifications was mandatory.
LightEdge easily met the hospital’s demand for a partner with the financial backing to ensure long term stability and the option for capacity expansion. The hospital began moving into LightEdge’s Phase I 60,000 square foot underground facility during the first half of 2015 and is now fully operational in the facility. “The stability and flexibility that we have achieved by moving to LightEdge has freed capital and resources allowing us to stay ahead of technology changes, patient needs and our competition,” said Sean Roberts, systems director for The University of Kansas Hospital.
“We are very pleased to have such a world class health care provider as a key tenant within our facility,” said Jim Masterson, chief executive officer for LightEdge Solutions. “We pride ourselves in our efforts to support the stringent requirements of the health care and financial markets. For the University of Kansas Hospital to recognize those capabilities as a key differentiator is great!”
