Adirondack Technical Solutions (ATS) was recently awarded a wireless deployment with the YMCA of Greater Rochester. The YMCA of Greater Rochester is the second largest YMCA in New York state. ATS officials said the wireless solutions were designed to provide connectivity to the state-of-the-art exercising equipment, just installed at each location, while providing BYOD access for each member.
Included was taking into consideration that the member access needed to be separate from equipment access and business traffic needed to remain private. ATS was able to deploy a solution to accommodate the needs of the YMCA while maintaining the highest level of security.

Hudson Headwaters Health Network (HHHN) recently made a donation to the Glens Falls Hospital’s Annual Fund.
Dr. John Rugge, CEO, presented a $10,000 check on behalf of the organization in support of minimally invasive and robotic technology.
It marked the first significant cash donation from HHHN to the fund, officials said.
Gifts to this year’s fund support minimally invasive and robotic technology. GFH surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures that cover a wide range of specialty services, including obstetrics and gynecology, as well as vascular, general, and urological surgeries. Officials said these procedures allow patients to return to their lives sooner due to smaller incisions, minimal scarring, and quicker recovery times.
