Shields Health Care Group, a provider of MRI, PET/CT and radiation therapy services in New England, is using Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Ethernet and Internet services at its 36 locations throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

Shields is using Ethernet Network Service from Comcast Business with up to 100 Mbps of capacity at 20 of its largest healthcare partners. The remaining 16 providers access the Shields network through Comcast Business Internet broadband services. An additional 10 Gbps port at the company's main data center in Boston allows radiologists to send, store and access files across the network.

"Our radiologists are our network monitoring system. We are notified immediately if there are any slow or non-working connections. With our last provider, we had several issues with the network and customer service. Since we switched to Comcast Business, we have been able to double the speed of our transfers for faster image sharing and have the ability to quickly expand our network to new healthcare partners in a matter of days," said Chuck Spurr, CIO at Shields Health Care Group.
