WESTFORD, Mass.—Tyco Security Products announced this week that Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH), based in New Haven, Conn., has chosen an integrated security solution from the company’s Software House and American Dynamics brands, according to a Tyco statement.

The solution will secure YNHH’s 1,500-bed flagship teaching hospital and various other sites as part of its parent organization, Yale New Haven Health System.

By selecting Software House’s C-Cure 9000 security and event management system and American Dynamics’ VideoEdge network VMS, YNHH will be able to centralize the management of its security systems, both access and video, from the hospital’s 12 individual sites on the network.

“This new system not only provides critical information to our department so we can make timely, strategic decisions, but it also offers system intelligence to provide data to the rest of our organization,” said Marvin White, manager of Physical Security-Protective Services at YNHH, in the statement.

In collaboration with its integrator, Johnson Controls, YHNN’s access control migration plan includes updating the access control credentials for more than 12,000 workers in the network, impacting more than 1,000 doors and readers. When the transition is completed this spring, the hospital will have a system that will grow for years to come because of the scalability of Software House’s integrated system, the statement said.
