No, we are not doctors, but Anderson Lock professionals prescribe security solutions for healthcare facilities throughout Chicagoland. Our knowledgeable hardware sales representatives help healthcare facilities meet Joint Commission and CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) security hardware standards and requirements.
Plus, there is a very beneficial ‘side effect,’ for our participation in projects that fall under the “capital expenditure reporting regulations.” Since 2012, Anderson Lock has been certified WBE (Women’s Business Enterprise.) Hospitals with over 100 beds must report capital expenditures at or above $200,000. According to the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act (20 ILCS 3960) they “shall also meet the reporting requirements under this subsection (b) for female-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, and small business enterprises with respect to those reported capital expenditures.”
If your healthcare facility, business or government bids require WBE representation, we can provide documentation and assist with vendor-reporting questions.
Additionally, three products we ‘advocate’ daily are:
- Commercial grade latching hardware, designed especially for hospital doors
- Anti-ligature hardware, designed exclusively for behavioral health facilities and
- Quiet latch retraction exit devices, designed for healthcare corridors.
