One of the most complex and challenging facilities to keep secure is a hospital. There are so many levels of security required and different types of access to address. The challenge from a security door standpoint is that you have a large campus, vertical or spread out, probably both. You have staff members that have to move freely throughout the campus, but much of the real estate needs to be monitored and have access control.
You have areas like ICU and surgery wings that must be reserved for authorized personnel only for the obvious reasons. But then you also have patient records that must be kept secure. Working with security professionals to plan and implement the proper door and access controls to fit any applications is a key area in the securing of any healthcare facility.
