King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital Case Study | Bangkok, Thailand Hospital | Gallagher Security

The challenge

King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital (KCMH) is one of the largest hospitals in Thailand. Operated by the Thai Red Cross Society, it functions as the teaching/training medical center for Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Medicine, as well as the Thai Red Cross College of Nursing.

With a 225,000m2 site and more than 10,000 cardholders, KCMH needed a highly reliable security solution to secure the hospital and protect staff, patients and assets. Requirements included a high level of integration with other systems, the ability to meet increasing compliance requirements, and a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI). The solution also had to be scalable to meet future security needs.

 

The Gallagher solution

Using Gallagher Command Centre, KCMH is able to integrate multiple systems including fire alarms, Symphony video management software, building automation and parking. IT industry standards for integration such as XML, SQL, OPC and BACnet are all supported.

Monitoring operations through one central platform allows KCMH staff to quickly identify, locate and respond to any risks on site. MIFARE Classic® and Sagem Fingerprint technologies provide a higher level of validated access control in critical areas.

 

The business value

Gallagher’s highly integrated, centralized solution ensures all of KCMH’s security, privacy and compliance requirements are met, as well as providing enhanced operational efficiencies and cost savings.

Command Centre streamlines operations for KCMH, providing instant detection and immediate response times alongside reduced security operating costs. The user-friendly GUI provides further value through reduced training time. The Gallagher system is fully scalable, ensuring future expansion requirements can be cost effectively met.
