Mission Trail Baptist Hospital San Antonio, Texas
ChallengeWhen Baptist Health System decided to shutter its legacy Southeast Baptist Hospital location, the organization decided to build a new replacement hospital on San Antonio's south side. The new Mission Trail Baptist Hospital was slated to be a marvel of architectural design and technological innovation. Baptist Health selected Brasfield & Gorrie to serve as General Contractor on the project, and to ensure the finest network cabling deliverables were provided, the GC selected FSG's San Antonio branch and its Tero Technologies design team to provide all the structured cabling for the hospital.
SolutionFSG's work scope involved running all cabling throughout the new hospital facility. The A/V networking included all PA speakers, nurse-call cabling, and patient room television mounting. Additionally, FSG provided the network infrastructure to support the hospital's fire alarm system and its security system. FSG's talented crews proved to be the cabling all-stars on the project, prompting the GC to request an additional work scope in the form of assisting other trades in similar work at the hospital.
ResultThe completed hospital debuted to wide acclaim from citizens and design review organizations alike. Mission Trails Baptist Hospital was awarded a LEED Gold certification, making it the first LEED-certified hospital in San Antonio, and Texas' first Acute Care hospital to be certified to that standard.
While the construction project was a clear success, FSG's relationship with Baptist Healthcare was also successful, as more than eight years later the hospital continues to turn to FSG for its ongoing network cabling and technology upgrade requirements.
