Five-Hospital System Selects SDS to Protect Headquarters with Indoor Gunshot Detection

shutterstock_156021353-hospitalAs the world leader in gunshot detection technology, Shooter Detection Systems continues to break through new vertical markets as our world class gunshot detection products are selected in the marketplace. Most recently, SDS was chosen for a Healthcare System in the Northeast comprised of five hospitals and multiple facilities serving the region with outpatient laboratories, rehabilitation and surgical centers, independent and assisted living centers and skilled nursing facilities.

Recent information released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS) has confirmed what most working in healthcare security have suspected for years — staff working in hospitals can and do experience much higher rates of workplace violence than individuals in other occupations. This Healthcare Company’s Executive Security Team is known to be very forward thinking in their approach to securing their facilities against the numerous threats that can happen at their hospitals and healthcare facilities on any given day. After doing extensive research, The Guardian was determined to be “best in class” gunshot detection technology and is slated for installation in January 2017 by SDS Authorized Dealer Securitronics.

Special thanks go out to our retiring Director of Business Development Tom Rohr Sr. for his work on this project. Tom is retiring from his long career in corporate security this November.
