When the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center decided to build a new facility in Yonkers, New York, Cerami was brought on board to provide audiovisual (AV) design for state-of-the-art, high definition audio and video capabilities for conference rooms, pediatric therapy rooms, residence rooms, as well as a building-wide IP television solution.
Elizabeth Seton is unique in that it is only one of four centers that provides care for “medically fragile” children. With this in mind, Cerami worked to provide an extra level of comfort by including an interactive bedside television system. With this system, patients have immediate access to hospital information, entertainment, and communication with a touch of a button. Cerami designed an easily accessible AV system for the two pediatric therapy rooms geared towards multi-sensory stimulation, and linked these rooms audiovisually to all therapy rooms and the gymnasium.
Cerami also created first class conference rooms, including portable tabletop microphones, an HD camera and high lumen projection system for videoconferencing capabilities, and an automated control system. A building-wide public address system was tied into the nurses’ call system to locate anyone within a given zoned area for immediate response. As in the therapy rooms, Cerami designed an interconnected system for the boardrooms, conference rooms, and the paging system, linking them all together.
