Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital New Patient Tower – artist rendering

The Vantage Technology Consulting team always gets excited when one of our projects makes the leap from planning to steel-and-concrete reality. Just such a leap will take place in October of this year, when construction begins on the much-anticipated new patient tower to be built at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Santa Clarita, CA,

Preliminary construction has already begun on an expanded parking facility to support the project – a welcome sign of good things to come that has not gone unnoticed by the citizenry of this rapidly growing community in northern LA County. After all, it’s one thing for a town’s inhabitants to read about such projects in the local paper or hear about them from civic leaders – and another thing entirely when the construction cranes, cement trucks and work crews show up and start doing their thing.

For a much-anticipated project like this one, it’s enough to make the news – and it has!

The Santa Clarita Valley Signal newspaper recently posted a video report about the hospital moving forward with its plans.

Vantage consultants continue to work tirelessly with officials at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital to implement the new patient tower’s comprehensive technology plan. When complete, the six-story structure will employ state-of-the-art communication infrastructure to support Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), next-generation Patient Entertainment and Information systems, pervasive tele-health systems and a medical-grade wireless network.
