Springfield, VA, USA, May, 2019 -- Spok, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPOK) and a global provider in healthcare communications, announced that North York General Hospital (NYGH) has successfully implemented Spok Care Connect(R) contact center solutions to increase operator efficiency and help improve the delivery of care for their patients. NYGH, a Canadian academic hospital, reported a successful go-live after receiving its first call on the new Spok system on March 12.
"Our partnership with Spok marks a new era for our contact center and a positive impact on communication across the hospital," said Sumon Acharjee, chief information officer at NYGH. "We are able to mitigate patient safety risks by connecting physicians, nurses, and others with accurate information in a fast and reliable manner.

This implementation was part of NYGH’s larger initiative to modernize call center operations and replace outdated methods of call handling. After upgrading existing telephony systems and extending to Voice over IP (VoIP), NYGH began evaluating several communication vendors.
"We needed a new system that would allow us to build capacity and integrate with modern technology," says Chi-Cheng Chu, information services manager at NYGH. "Spok presented the most advanced solution with all the tools our operators need in one single platform. Our go-live went flawlessly and our Spok system is working seamlessly for our operators."
"Contact centers are the heart of communications for nearly every area of the modern hospital," said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc. "We are proud to offer advanced technology that brings together critical functions and helps hospitals like NYGH reduce costs, improve patient care, and achieve operational value."
