Landmark health care facility project incorporates advanced real-time location systems

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s new $1.5 billion construction project is the largest in the history of Georgia. The 70-acre medical campus features the Blank Hospital — a 19-story, 1.5-million-square-foot, 446-bed facility — and an 11-story, 325,000-square-foot medical office building. Children’s selected Vizzia Technologies to pre-install the industry’s most advanced real-time location system (RTLS) solutions to optimize asset management and improve patient care.

Health Facilities Management’s 2023 Hospital Construction survey noted a prioritization of building technology systems, including RTLS, environmental monitoring and electronic wayfinding. Hospital leaders are looking to leverage advanced technologies in the planning process of “smart hospitals.”

Piedmont Atlanta Hospital’s Marcus Tower, the winner of the ASHE 2023 Vista Award, also included Vizzia RTLS in the planning process. Other notable construction projects that pre-installed Vizzia RTLS include Grady Health System’s new 10-story, 600,000-square-foot Correll Pavilion surgical center.

Vizzia Technologies is a leader in advanced RTLS and data analytics for health care organizations. Its industry best practices have earned it the 2023 Healthcare RTLS Company of the Year Award from the influential research firm Frost & Sullivan. Vizzia Technologies
