On today’s morning episode, we heard about our partnership with MetroHealth System, a hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. With the goal of vaccinating the Cleveland community in a variety of locations including homeless shelters, schools and more - they knew they would need a reliable network to make it happen.

That’s where our Business Markets Team stepped in with the help of our Verizon Crisis Response Team by activating over a dozen routers at a variety of vaccine sites. Our network helped medical personnel and first responders stay connected and input necessary data to keep their community safe and healthy.

Thank you to the Business Market and Verizon Crisis Response Teams for using our network as a force for good.
