Problem: A majority of the Medical Center’s departments were continuing to store their records and archives in almost any place they could find, without any kind of organizational system. Consequently, they found they were running out of space for incoming records, and experiencing inefficiencies due to the lack of an organized retrieval system.
Solution: The Medical Center was fortunately able to fund a building, which they erected on-site with a ceiling height of over 20 feet. This enabled Western Pacific to install a two-level archive system of Pacific steel clip shelving to accommodate open files, x-rays, and archive boxes. A vertical reciprocating conveyor, or freight elevator, was also installed to facilitate access to the second level.
Benefits: The new building, along with Western Pacific’s custom storage solution, enabled the entire Medical Center staff to manage their records and archives much more efficiently. A large part of gaining control over the situation was achieved by getting all the records and archives into one place. Even more important was having the system custom designed and engineered to handle their specific needs, and a management team trained to effectively run it.
Medical Archive Storage, RiveTier
Client: A Southern California Hospital
Problem: With a variety of facilities all over San Diego County, including major hospitals, clinics, offices, and administration facilities, this organization naturally accumulates a significant amount of records. After paying a company to keep all their files off-site for a number of years, they decided to take matters into their own hands. So they leased a new building and pulled together a department of employees, setting up their own archive management system. The only thing missing was a custom storage system that could effectively drive the operation.
Solution: That’s where WPSS came in. The building was outfitted with the RiveTier product line. Open File shelving systems were installed to hold all active files and Long Span shelving was used to store x-rays and archive boxes.
Benefits: The new storage solution has enabled the hospital to take control of their own files and archives. They can pull records immediately as needed to get them to their demand center in half the time it took the off-site company originally controlling the operation. In this case, the new storage system has saved the hospital time and money.
