Hospitals and healthcare institutions are some of the nation's most active public places as they provide care for people when they are most vulnerable. Because of the large volume of activity and risks associated with servicing their communities, healthcare facilities can become targets for criminal activity if left unprotected. G4S healthcare has programs and processes that reduce risks within security sensitive areas like the Emergency Department, Maternity and Pediatrics, Behavioral Health, Information Technology, the Pharmacy and Medical Records.
Mr. Scaglione joins G4S after fifteen years as Director of Security for New York Presbyterian Hospital, where he directed security and fire safety services for the multi-state operation which included a five million square foot hospital, college, office and residential complex with a $7.2 million budget. He holds a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice from Rutgers University.
