Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital's Weapons Detection System is Now In Place

We launched a new weapons detection system at MBSH at the emergency department entrance. The implementation of this advanced security technology is part of our ongoing commitment to upgrade our systems and advance the safety and security of our employees and patients. Training happened on Aug. 3. The system will go live at a later date which we will announce.

With Safety being one of Our BJC Values, BJC has actively explored advanced solutions to bolster our security measures. We were in search of a reliable and innovative solution that would provide comprehensive threat detection capabilities while ensuring a seamless experience for employees, patients and visitors. The new system can scan 4,000 people an hour, a significantly faster rate than standard metal detectors. It is used in hospitals throughout the United States and in major sports and entertainment venues throughout the world. 

The system uses advanced sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms to detect concealed weapons and help mitigate potential threats and ensure a safer environment. The system provides instant analytics and data insights, allowing our security team to identify trends, optimize operations and respond swiftly to evolving security challenges.

To ensure the new system operates at the fullest capacity, we added more security team members and conducted comprehensive training sessions for our security team members. They are equipped with the necessary knowledge and expertise to effectively utilize the system while upholding our commitment to respect the privacy of those who are entering our facility through the emergency department.
