St. Joseph's Smart Upgrade to Unified Security
St. Joseph’s Health Care London is a hospital system in Ontario, Canada, consisting of 2,000 residents and fellows, over 4,000 employees, and 900-plus physicians in four major sites. The organization had been experiencing problems with its analog video surveillance due to a lack of camera clarity and difficulty finding and reviewing video footage. When a renovation and wing addition was planned for one of its facilities, St. Joseph’s decided to update the security system as well.
This case study details the unique security and surveillance requirements of St. Joseph’s and explains how Johnson Controls' VideoEdge video management system, along with new Illustra IP cameras, provided a robust solution. The system allowed St. Joseph to integrate everything seamlessly and positioned them to be able to upgrade the entire system over time.
