Award-winning Halton Healthcare operates three community hospitals in the Region of Halton in southern Ontario, Canada. The organization is expanding to meet the needs of the growing area it serves.

Old IT systems could not adequately serve a patient population expected to double by 2031. Building a completely new hospital and expanding other facilities provided opportunities for a fresh start with truly integrated IT systems.

Halton Healthcare chose VMware Horizon, Vblock systems from EMC and technology expertise from VMware partner Teknicor for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and disaster recovery solution. The organization now has the largest VDI implementation in Canadian healthcare, serving as a model for hospitals across Canada.

—Sandy Saggar, Chief Information Officer, Halton Healthcare
