Wireless Internet FAQs

What is Wifi?

Wireless Fidelity – Otherwise known as Wireless Networking, commonly using the 802.11a/b/g protocol.

What is a "Hot Spot"?

A “Hot Spot” is specific geographic location in which an access point provides public wireless broadband network services to mobile visitors through a wireless local area network. Hotspots are commonly located in heavily populated places typically airports, train stations, libraries, convention centers and hotels.

Medical Center Hospital’s Hot Spot allows Internet communication with family, friends and loved ones. Using our Wi-Fi connection and your Internet email account, you can send photos of the newborn and communicate with friends and family.

Protect Yourself!

Anytime you are connected to the Internet, you are prone to security risks. Following the tips below will help you minimize some of the security risks.

  • Be cautious when filling in personal information (name, Social Security Number, credit card info, etc.) on websites. Your identity can be easily stolen over the Internet if the website does not have built-in security for you. Always check for the padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser that indicates secure sites.
  • Do not download files from the Internet unless you are certain that the files are from a safe source.
  • Do not open email attachments from email addresses that you do not know. Even if you do know them, make sure the attachment is safe before opening it.
  • Install virus protection software and keep it up to date. Insure that your device has the latest security updates from the vendor (i.e. Microsoft)


Your use of the Medical Center Hospital wireless Internet connection is at your own risk. As with most public wireless hot spots, the hospital’s wireless connection is not secure. There can be non-trustworthy third parties between the user and anybody with whom the user communicates. Any information being sent or received could potentially be intercepted by another wireless user. Cautious and informed wireless users should not transmit their credit card information, passwords and any other sensitive personal information while using any wireless “hot spot.”

MCH assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable for any loss of data to, damages to, or viruses that may infect your computer equipment or other property on account of your access to, use of, or browsing in any website, or your downloading of any materials from websites.

Any restriction or monitoring of a minor’s access to the hospital’s wireless network is the sole responsibility of the parent or guardian.
