Protus3 completed a technical assessment, functional test, and inventory of the Grant Medical Center Campus of OhioHealth. This project included access control, duress alarm “buttons”, security video systems, intercoms, panels, servers, and workstations. OhioHealth awarded the project to Protus3 in November 2018.
A functional test ensures that these systems have been installed, maintained, and operating to meet any local and/or applicable codes. The systems should be functioning according to manufacturer’s specifications, physical security best practices, and organizational requirements.
The Grant Medical Center campus includes several different buildings. The main building is the Main Hospital which consists of eleven levels. The campus also includes the Bone and Joint Center (four floors), the Surgical and Heart Center (four floors), three floors of the 340 E. Town Street Medical Building, and two floors at the 393 E. Town Medical Building.
Protus3 worked with OhioHealth Protective Services leadership to test each system and all components of each system. Prior to beginning the functional test, Protus3 received documentation that provided the information needed to build the customized testing sheets. These documents included floor plans, device names, device counts, and system manufacturers.
Protus3 tested each of the systems individually. The goal was to verify the condition of the equipment and determine if each device operated and functioned according to manufacturer’s specifications or physical security best practices.
