Wireless signal is a vital component of running a successful business today, but there are perhaps no places where it is more important than in a hospital. The life of a doctor or nurse requires them to be available at virtually any time in case of an emergency that requires their assistance. On the other side, you have the patients and their families that want to stay connected with friends and family members to give them updates on how their loved ones are doing while in the hospital. Not having a reliable cell signal can be a source of frustration for your guests, and could be a matter of life and death if healthcare providers are suffering signal loss and cannot be contacted.
Hospitals are often susceptible to signal loss because of the nature of their construction. Hospitals have a lot of technology, which can cause interference–decreasing cell signal reception. Hospitals also often contain very thick walls, doors, and windows, designed to contain illness, radiation testing and treatment, and more. While this is great for health or patients, employees, and guests, it can provide a poor user experience with cellular devices. Signal boosters from ATG can help mitigate this signal degradation, giving your hospital a reliable cell signal.
In hospital, your employees as well as patients likely have a range of different cell phone providers (e.g., Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile or AT&T). With most carriers locking customers into multi-year contracts, your employees can’t easily switch if their carrier has poor reception inside your building.
That’s where cell phone signal boosters for hospitals come in to play. At Atlantic Technology Group, we’ve been helping businesses boost their wireless signal strength throughout the Mid-Atlantic—from New Jersey to Virginia—and we can help you too!

How Does a Cell Phone Signal Booster Work?
A cell phone signal booster amplifies the existing cell phone signal so that it can remain strong enough throughout your entire hospital. It works by taking an existing cell phone signal from outside and boosting it inside, rebroadcasting the signal strength so that it can reach all your employees’ locations.
One great benefit of some signal boosters is that they boost the signal strength for all carriers, not just one. That means if your employees have a mix of cell phone plans with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, some boosters will amplify all of their 2G, 3G, and 4G signals.
Where Can Cell Phone Signal Boosters Work?
Wireless amplifiers are ideal for spaces where the cell phone signal is weak inside, including:
- Doctors Offices
- Health Clinics
- Dental Clinics
- And More
What Types of Cell Phone Boosters Are There?
ATG can offer many different solutions for your wireless troubles, ranging from basic to more advanced technology.
Basic In-Building Solutions
Entry-level solutions can solve cell phone signal weakness problems in a doctors office setting or small business. Packaged as a kit, they can solve your wireless problems with an exterior antenna, a cable that runs from the antenna to the amplifier, and an indoor antenna that amplifies the signal inside your office space. Or if you are trying to improve the signal for one specific carrier we also can provide a smart repeater that will be easier to install.
Advanced In-Building Solutions
If your hospital is larger (multiple levels, great square footage, etc.), you will need a more customized and advanced solution with multiple components to amplify the cell signal throughout the entire property. At ATG, we can help design and install the best system for your situation and ensure that building codes, safety measures, and optimized signal strength are all priorities in our work.
