Extension for Smart City

Smart City Networks, a Las Vegas-based telecommunications and technology company, has reached a seven-year contract extension to serve the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.

Smart City, which has served as the facility’s technology provider for more than nine years, will continue to provide numerous services at the venue, including high-speed Internet access, network cabling, Wi-Fi, telephone services and turnkey data networking services.

The company installed new equipment throughout the venue just in time to provide enhanced wireless support for the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest at the venue in July.

“Smart City has installed significant upgrades to the wireless network throughout the Duke Energy Convention Center, positioning the venue for continued success,” Mark Haley, president of Smart City Networks, said in a statement. “This technology has already played a key role in supporting the center’s large-scale events, and Smart City will continue to provide high-quality telecommunications and technology services for this popular facility.”

Founded more than 30 years ago, Smart City Networks designs, installs and maintains data, voice, electrical and utility platforms, coupled with voice, video and data network engineering, security and monitoring. Providing technology services to over 3,000 conventions and meetings annually, Smart City Networks currently serves more than 35 convention and meeting facilities across the U.S., totaling over 17 million square feet of exhibit space.

Triage center opens

WestCare Nevada opened a Community Triage Center and Community Involvement Center on Oct. 28 to cope with the increasing number of people seeking immediate crisis services.

The 22,000-square-foot renovated building is at 323 N. Maryland Pkwy and is divided into two sections – a crisis portion and a community resources area.

Services include prevention education; outreach; outpatient counseling; substance abuse outpatient treatment; mental health services; and assessment intake. The Community Triage Center provides safe, medically supervised detoxification services and triage services for people with mental health issues.

The new center will allow paramedics and police officers a place to transport individuals seeking mental health crisis help. Following assessment, WestCare professionals will then either treat the patient or direct and facilitate the patient’s relocation to other facilities.

“We are always looking for new ways to serve the community and underserved populations,” WestCare president and CEO Richard Steinberg said in a statement. “This new facility will be open to anyone who is battling addiction and mental health issues. We are proud to be a light in the dark for those who are suffering.”

WestCare Nevada is partially funded by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Nevada’s Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Agency, Clark County, City of Las Vegas, the Veteran’s Administration, Nevada Division of Mental Health and Developmental Services.
