Hytera, Triangle Donate DMR Radios to New Jersey Medical Group
Monday, April 20, 2020 | Comments

Hytera America, in partnership with Triangle Communications, donated PD502i Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) radios and chargers to Summit Medical Group in New Jersey to help the group quickly reallocate resources and save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Summit Medical Group is the largest and oldest physician-owned multispecialty medical practice in New Jersey with more than 80 locations in seven northern New Jersey counties. Summit Medical Group’s more than 1,000 practitioners cover nearly every medical specialty and services, with a focus on delivering patient-centered coordinated care.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Summit Medical Group has put up tents for evaluation and testing of patients suspected of having COVID-19, set up a COVID-19 triage telephone line, sent additional medical resources to local hospitals, moved all oncology patients to a designated facility, and increased virtual visits to more than 3,000 a day to ensure patients who need medical care continue to receive it in a safe setting.

This massive shift in logistics, resources and patient care requires effective communications between medical, administrative, maintenance and security staff.

“We are moving quickly to shift resources, provide testing and open new facilities to help lessen the strain on hospitals and support first responders during this pandemic,” said Sam Easterday, security manager, Summit Medical Group. “The generous contribution from Hytera and Triangle Communications will directly contribute towards our ability to work with other hospitals and deliver life-saving treatment.”

“Radios are critical to effective communications, particularly when rapid and extensive changes are required in organizations responding to a crisis,” said Steve Cragg, vice president of sales at Hytera. “Hytera is dedicated to providing two-way radio solutions to the medical community that can immediately be added to existing radio networks to improve communications and address the overwhelming challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
