Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center

The new 633,000 square foot SJRMC in Mishawaka was an incredible project to be a part of. As the major low voltage technology contractor for the job we provided the nurse call, paging, televisions, and complete security for the entire facility. After countless hours of investigating the right technology for patient care communication, the hospital ultimately decided on the Rauland Borg Responder IV with the Responder NET interface. In making this decision the hospital was able to merge their wireless telephone system with the nurse call, giving the nursing staff the ability to answer patient calls immediately. Thus patient care is delivered faster and hospital satisfaction scores continue to grow.

Challenge: Provide a complete communication system for a brand new 633,000-square-foot healthcare facility, using leading-edge technology that would maximize efficiency for hospital staff.
Solution: As the primary low-voltage technology contractor on the project, we consulted closely with the client to determine the best possible patient care communication systems. We implemented Nurse Call, paging, televisions, and complete security for the facility.
Products used: Rauland Borg Responder IV with Responder NET interface
Results:
  • The selected Rauland systems allowed the hospital to merge its wireless phone system with the Nurse Call system, so nurses can respond to patient calls immediately.
  • Patient care is now delivered faster than ever — and hospital satisfaction scores continue to improve.
