New Parkland Hospital
The existing hospital struggled to support patient needs – The building was nearing obsolescence at 55 years. A bond measure passed to fund construction of a new Parkland Hospital. The community wanted a civic landmark that would serve them for the next 50 years. Hospital staff wanted to be able to welcome, stay connected with, and respond quickly to patients at every point in their healthcare journey. Technology was key to make both visions possible.
TEECOM’s approach to the design assumed that Parkland Hospital will leverage its new hospital for the next 50 years and that the building must accommodate whatever the future of technology might bring in that building's lifespan. Our solutions included pervasive and ubiquitous coverage, a distributed antenna system, and technology spaces that could offer growth as all things become IP connected. We delivered this converged network and robust flexibility within tight financial constraints.
Transformation Enabled by Technology: Optimized workflow is a key ingredient to improving overall patient care at Parkland, and the integrated technology systems that TEECOM has designed will allow the hospital staff to work in ways previously unimaginable, yielding more efficient operations as well as better patient experiences.
