New L.A. Medical Center Selects Security
Slated to open in 2007, the new LAMC will have 464 patient rooms, 11 labor and delivery rooms and six cardiac surgery suites. The 912,000-sq. ft. facility will serve as Kaiser Permanenteâ€™s Southern Californian tertiary center for cardiovascular surgery, pediatric intensive care, neurosurgery, spine surgery and high-risk obstetrics.
To help protect the LAMC, Siemens will install its XLSV FireFinder system, a fire safety system with integrated digital emergency voice evac. The advanced technology enables the system to respond to a fire instantaneously, automatically activating alarms and engaging all emergency control operations within 3 sec. of a detected fire.
