Imtech: health care orders for 55 million euro
Gouda, The Netherlands, 26 July 2007 - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) announces that Imtech Care & Cure, in which Imtech has gathered knowledge and know-how of health care in the Netherlands, is making good progress. Recently, orders were obtained worth a total of more than 55 million euro.
An important order is concerned with the complete electrical engineering and part of the security facilities in the Jeroen Bosch Hospital in Den Bosch which will be partly new construction and partly renovation. With an area of almost 170,000 m2, this hospital will be one of the largest in the Netherlands. Imtech is also supplying the new ICT (Information and Communications Technology) communications infrastructure for care provider Florence, a merger of five care providers in the Haaglanden region. This structure, which is based on IP (Internet Protocol), makes it possible to reduce operating costs, improve manageability, and introduce new services such as Telemedicine (digital ordering and distribution of medicines), ICT support for meal services and an interactive social alarm system. A future-proof infrastructure for a wireless ICT network will be realised for the Martini Hospital in Groningen. Virtually all the technical solutions for a clinical chemical haematological laboratory and a new general practitioners' post will be realised by Imtech at the Sint Franciscus Hospital in Rotterdam. Imtech will also provide part of the technology in the new Orbis Medical Park, a modern care boulevard in Sittard.
Technology (a combination of electrical engineering, ICT and mechanical engineering) is becoming more and more important in health care. Operating costs have to be reduced, manageability must be improved, and maintenance must become more professional. The importance of ICT is also increasing rapidly. Technical solutions have to mesh seamlessly with the care process.
Imtech has gathered its knowledge and know-how of health care in Imtech Care & Cure, which forms a single contact point for complete and integral technological solutions. The integration of all technological solutions is Imtech's answer to cost and management problems in health care, including ICT, data and telecommunication, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering (energy, air and climate technology), maintenance management & maintenance services, access technology and (fire) security technology. Imtech is concentrating on the following current topics: strengthening strategic alliances with hospitals and care facilities and suppliers of medical equipment, the complete technological exploitation of care buildings, integral security, sustainable use of energy, integration of ICT, and the development of innovative technological concepts (for example applications of RFID, Radio Frequency Identification, technology based on radio waves). In the health care sector, Imtech applies RFID to patient and chain logistics, such as identification, localisation, tracing, telemetry and security.
