Award-winning security and communications integrator, G4S Technology LLC, Omaha, Neb., recently announced a contract award to provide electronic security for the UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center currently under construction in La Jolla, Calif. This facility will house four hospitals in one location: the existing Thornton Hospital, the Hospital for Advanced Surgery, the Hospital for Cancer Care, and the Hospital for Women and Infants.

G4S Technology said it was selected by the project’s general contractor, Kitchell, to provide access control, a video management system, and an infant abduction system for the center’s tower, central utility plant and kitchen. The technology is designed to ensure the safety and security of patients, visitors, employees and medical professionals operating and being treated at the facilities.

“We’re excited to engage with G4S in assuring that this project has the most technologically advanced security system possible,” said Kitchell Project Director, Michael Wolfe.

G4S Technology said it will provide the Jacobs Medical Center with top-of-the-line, innovative security solutions, which will grant the UC Jacobs Medical Center peace of mind and allow healthcare professionals to focus on their mission of healing and innovation without the worry of security and privacy for their patients.

“The UC San Diego Health System is award-winning not only for its medical and scientific breakthroughs, but also for its strong commitment to patient care,” said Sam Belbina, president of G4S Technology. “By providing these advanced security measures, we are ensuring patient privacy and security. This will allow medical professionals to focus solely on their mission of providing unsurpassed healthcare for their patients.”
