Missouri health care facility future-proofs patients and staff safety

The Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City, Missouri deployed a comprehensive IP video surveillance system from DVTel throughout its 350-bed facility, with the help of CI3 Integrators. Approximately 14,000 visitors enter the hospital each week, making security a top concern. The hospital employs more than 100 security officers, along with its 415-camera video surveillance system, to support internal security policies and regulatory compliance.

According to Dan Arnett, Assistant Director for Security and Transportation at the hospital, the institution wanted to transit to an IP video surveillance system based on open standards that would give the hospital the option to choose what works best in its environment, and would be sufficiently scalable to adapt to future changes. Obtaining video data of incidents is critical, and the hospital opted for DVTel's megapixel fixed cameras and VMS to improve the protection of patients, secure high-risk areas and future-proof security investments.

“The improved, HD image quality … adds another layer to the hospital's security program and helps ensure patients, staff and families stay safe, which is its No. 1 priority,” said Gene Tiebout, Service Manager of CI3 Integrators, the integrator for the project. It was a great representation of application possibilities, added Ed Wassall, VP of Global Marketing at DVTEL.
