Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2006
The Children’s Hospital of Orange County, the premier source for pediatric health care, has awarded the storage solution contract to McMurray Stern, the exclusive Los Angeles and Orange County area contractor for Spacesaver. Spacesaver’s compact storage system will centralize the HIM department for CHOC. This solution is in symmetry with the center’s goal of achieving national recognition as a premier children’s hospital.
Founded in 1964, CHOC’s main mission to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children has continued to excel the medical organization, ranking CHOC as one of the top children’s hospitals nationwide. Establishing multiple outstanding institutes within the hospital, each institute focuses on the management and treatment of infants, children, and teenagers manifesting hope for families seeking a chance of life. Known for being the first hospital to use many new progressive treatments, they invariably keep their mission in sight by having each institute assist patients in getting the treatment they require with the latest technological developments in the medical industry. Supporting CHOC’s progressive ideals and the growth of their records, a newly centralized HIM department would improve record management systems with the installation of several compact storage systems.
As McMurray Stern executive vice-president of sales and marketing Matt Denburg stated, “Structural limitations of the basement slab required a specially designed rail system to support the heavy loads associated with high density storage of medical records” Closely spaced structural rails were welded to heavy gauge steel plates to safely distribute the weight of the system. McMurray Stern is proud to have the opportunity to work with CHOC on such a special project.
