Accu-Mount System Series provides UK HealthCare with long-term equipment support solutions for their expansion and renovation needs.
Lexington is the second largest metropolitan area in the beautiful and historical state of Kentucky. It has “old-world southern charm,” is home to bluegrass, bourbon, the University of Kentucky and NCAA champions the Kentucky Wildcats and above all, horses. Known as the “horse capital of the world,” Lexington made recent headlines when Triple Crown Winner, American Pharoah, won the prestigious 2015 Breeder’s Cup Classic at Keeneland Racecourse.
With all of these accolades, it should come as no surprise that Lexington is a great place to live, work and play. Add a dash of topnotch healthcare, and there’s no reason to leave.
University of Kentucky’s healthcare system, better known as UK HealthCare, is the state’s most advanced medical care provider. With an unparalleled commitment to research and patient care, UK HealthCare represents six cutting-edge health profession colleges, patient care services, clinics and hospitals. The organization’s mission is to provide access to the most advanced healthcare now, and for years to come.
In efforts to achieve its mission, UK HealthCare is constantly expanding and renovating its facilities. Scheduled to open in the spring of 2016, the healthcare organization is close to completing its ninth and 10th floor intensive care unit build-out at UK Albert Chandler Hospital Pavilion A. Cutting-edge ICUs need cutting-edge ceiling supported booms. Ceiling supported booms need mounting structures. Enter, Stryker and Healthcare Technology Corporation.
Healthcare Technology Corporation specializes in the design and manufacture of pre-fabricated overhead boom and light mounting solutions: Accu-Mount Support Systems. Since 2004, HTC has attached state-of-the-art surgical equipment, such as exam and surgical lights, microscopes, monitors, cameras, equipment management systems and anesthesia booms to overhead building structures in hundreds of hospitals across the continental U.S.
No stranger to UK HealthCare, for the past 10 years Accu-Mount Support Systems have been installed and utilized, supporting Stryker equipment within the UK Albert Chandler Hospital and UK Good Samaritan Hospital.
“Throughout my 10 years at Stryker Communications, I’ve had the pleasure of working on many projects with Stephen Strobridge at HTC,” said John Michaelides, Stryker territory manager.
Michaelides continued, “HTC produces a great product that will work with any piece of equipment that requires mounting. Given the opportunity, I would work with HTC on every project; their knowledge and professionalism is without question the best I have ever worked with.”
Setting yet another stage for success, Stryker supplied its FLEXIS Tandem Boom Configurations. Accompanied by HTC providing 48 Tandem Header Mounted Accu-Mount Support Systems, along with 96 custom riser bracket assemblies, UK Healthcare had been delivered a grand performance.
“HTC has a great product with their Accu-Mount Support Systems,” said Judy O. Pelfrey, senior healthcare facilities planner at UK Healthcare. “Their systems have been installed in our emergency department, patient care facility, numerous ORs, pathology lab and patient rooms.”
Pelfrey further added, “Steve’s great to work with. He’s knowledgeable, he listens and he invests his time and effort into a project from start to finish.”
The sentiment is mutual with Strobridge, president of HTC.
“Customer satisfaction and maintaining our relationships are key building blocks of our business,” says Strobridge. “UK healthcare is a world-class academic medical center and it’s been a pleasure to work with such an amazing and talented group of people over the years. I look forward to future opportunities with UK Healthcare.
