“Semi- after semi- has been coming in,” said Mike Parsons, Sherman Hospital’s Lead Mechanic for their Engineering Department, when the building was under construction. “Half your staff has been involved, everyone has been so helpful. You guys really stepped up and have been awesome!”

Hundreds of ASSA ABLOY ReadySet® integrated door systems were supplied by Anderson Lock to the new, replacement hospital, in Elgin, IL.

Project Manager Sam Sannasardo received a bundle of blueprints after the initial order had been placed with a company that unable to fulfill the contract. Sherman Hospital chose Anderson Lock because they wanted a single source for doors, frames and security door hardware–and because they value a business partner that understands the importance of meeting deadlines.

Hardware Sales Representatives Rose Umana, Randy Leonard and Jim Walsh had worked with Mike, a certified locksmith, for several years. Sargent locks were pre-installed with temporary cores, but Mike and his staff installed over 1,800 Sargent keyed cores prior to the hospital’s opening. Mike also set up Key Wizard software to maintain the huge master key system. He says Jim was “a great big help” with the keying schedule.

All ReadySet® components come from industry-leading brands and are prefinished, assembled, and tested before being shipped to the jobsite. Installations are fast and accurate, and they follow painting, flooring and other finish work. ReadySet® systems are ideal for facilities like Sherman Hospital with hundreds of repeatable doorways.
