This technology-driven project seamlessly incorporated campus access control upgrades while preserving the hospital’s welcoming, healing environment.

CHALLENGE
Prior to this upgrade, most access control on this historic medical campus was accomplished by key, combination locks and analogy systems.

OUTCOMES
Applying findings of the security assessment, the project upgraded the access control of 26 campus buildings, including the 7-story main hospital. Over 300 TCP\IP based video surveillance cameras were deployed in addition to 200 PIV-1 class access controlled doors, a dozen VoIP emergency call stanchions and TCP\IP based automatic license plate recognition systems. The design also provided two separate command and control centers in addition to fiber optic infrastructure to support remote operations.
