A perfect place to get well

Rush University Medical Center, Chicago

Rush University Medical Center, the university hospital of Rush University in Chicago, has more than 600 beds. The hospital conducts medical research in all areas and is home to one of the best nursing schools in the United States.

Challenge

The fire detection and extinguishing equipment in the data center of Rush University Medical Center was dated and needed to be replaced.

Solution

Siemens installed a Sinorix 227 fire extinguishing system in the medical center’s data center.

Benefits

If a fire should break out, it is quickly and reliably extinguished, and no residue is left behind. The extinguishing agent protects the sensitive electronic devices and critical patient data, ensuring business continuity. “Compared to other options, the Sinorix solution offers us the best combination of performance, price, and service,” says Will Raske, operations manager of the data center.
