Jeff Hamilton, emergency management coordinator for Mercy in St. Louis, teamed up with Mercy’s Simon Plowman to put building drawings on computer-aided design (CAD) systems for all of Mercy’s 28 hospitals and nearly 200 other facilities across four states.

By combining CAD technology with a security camera network, Mercy can provide emergency responders with detailed information that enables them to better respond to emergency situations, possibly saving time and lives. To learn more, read Catholic Health World’s story on Mercy’s efforts.
