Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow
The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) is a 1,677 bed acute hospital located in Govan in the south-west of Glasgow, Scotland. The hospital is built on the site of the former Southern General Hospital, opening at the end of April 2015 and is the largest hospital campus in Europe.
T.G.Baker (Sound) provided a networked public address/background music system to waiting areas and atrium areas within the hospital. This enabled each waiting area to select from a selection of music sources (DAB radio channels) and control the volume level locally.
There are zoned paging microphones at the adult hospital reception and the children’s hospital reception. These are capable of broadcasting paging announcements to individual zones or on an all call basis.
There is also a facility for pre-recorded security announcements which can be broadcast at pre-determined intervals or at scheduled times as required.

At the moment the system comprises of 26 Master Station Intercoms, however, this is expandable to over 3,000 Intercoms should the hospital require expanding the system throughout the hospital.
