Objective
For more than 130 years, the leaders, physicians and staff of St. Anthony's Medical Center have carried out Christ's healing ministry with the delivery of health care services to area residents. With the growth of the St. Louis community St. Anthony’s Medical Center decided it was imperative to build a new patient tower to accommodate both the growing and aging community. As apart of construction project they were in need of a nurse call system.


Solution
For the nurse call system Primary Systems utilized Rauland for implementation of Rauland Responder 4000. The Responder 4000 offered St. Anthony's Medical Center room stations that have voice and non-voice options, as well as traditional code blue and push for help buttons in case of an emergency. Those features are designed to keep patients safe which is what made the Responder 4000 a perfect match for St. Anthony's Medical Center specific needs.
