Redefining Project Partnerships
Today's hospitals face significant budget and accountability hurdles. Partnering with Swisslog can help healthcare design and construction professionals address those challenges and achieve better project outcomes. To ensure project design and management goals are met, Swisslog provides a cost benefit/analysis for each project, promoting proper evaluation of return on investment. In addition, to help designers meet technical and regulatory requirements, Swisslog will evaluate the following:
- Seismic zone requirements
- Coring and fire stop methods, fire alarm interfaces and any emergency requirements such as power or access
- System communication methodology (hard-wired or ethernet)
- System-specific needs for egress, storage, power, access
- Infection control requirements
- Union labor requirements and workforce testing
Pneumatic tube systems are considered among the five most critical systems central to hospital operations. For this reason, Swisslog invested in customer support resources and can guarantee maximum uptime through 24/7/365 support and the largest field service organization in the industry.
