Protecting a hospital complex

St. Josef's Hospital, which is run by the Vinzenz group, is a non-profit hospital and covers all fields of classical medicine. It is famous nationwide for its obstetrics and gynaecology department. In 2009, it was one of the first hospitals in Austria to be successfully certified and risk management and patient security are of great importance to the institution. To meet these needs even more effectively, the hospital was fitted with security technology from ABUS. Video cameras monitor the aisles, cloak rooms and the large underground car park.
