An examination of the electromagnetic environment from 30MHz-7GHz in St. Francis Hospital, in Tulsa, Oklahoma is the focus of this paper. Measurements were considered short term as the full spectrum was measured in twelve minutes. An experimental characterization of building penetration 55-1950MHz was performed. In contrast to other buildings, most hospitals are constructed with special walls that include metallic layers. Building penetration loss for a hospital is the main contribution of this paper. The measurement data is useful for network designers and hospital engineers.
