Hospital Centro Medico Campinas enhances fire security with Bosch

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Bosch has installed a comprehensive, connected, and completely integrated fire alarm system to provide optimised safety coverage for Hospital Centro Médico Campinas in Brazil. Designed by Bosch experts and implemented by Brazcamp Tecnologia installers in Campinas, Brazil, the system secures the entire city hospital campus around the clock.

All fire detection devices are connected via the modular fire panel 5000 Series from Bosch, thereby offering improved response times and better maintenance options – for the first time including remote maintenance – to the crucial healthcare facility. To succeed, the project required retrofitting of legacy fire prevention equipment and smart connectivity to accommodate for the unique layout of the premises.

Customised solution replaces legacy technology

Founded in 1973, Hospital Centro Médico Campinas is one of the most important general practice hospitals located in the state of São Paulo. The hospital campus underwent significant expansions over the past five decades to add new buildings and specialised healthcare services. Ultimately, this resulted in the installation of eleven different, incompatible fire alarm panels across the sprawling campus that required individual monitoring, cleaning, and maintenance. For seamless, around-the-clock fire safety of the entire premises, clinic operators wanted a unified and future-proof system.

One single, fully customised solution

The new customised solution now offers the following benefits:

Fixed compatibility challenges. Integration and consolidation of all data from connected devices on the modular Bosch Fire Panel 5000 Series. Thanks to retrofitting of legacy detectors, a major cost saver, devices communicate seamlessly.

Decentralised access 24/7. Direct access for personnel via remote keypads connected in three desked areas: Main reception, on-site fire department, and operation and control centre.

Entire campus on single network. Five loop modules cover all areas of Hospital Centro Médico Campinas with panels and detectors, including sensitive environments such as ICU, operating theatre, patient wards, and the hospital laboratory.

Increased safety response and situational awareness. Achieved via full integration with gas detection, sprinklers, and access control. As a result, personnel can pinpoint the location of a fire precisely and unlock doors and gates in case of an event for improved evacuation.

Full integration for seamless fire safety

The system was installed fast and without disruption of vital clinical services. To avoid future disruptions, smart connectivity of the new network allows maintenance by technicians with minimal disturbance. “Excellent specification and design work was carried out by the integrator and the Bosch engineering team,” said Eduardo Riguetti, safety manager, Hospital Centro Médico Campinas. As the hospital continues to grow, the flexibility of the new, future-proof Bosch solution is open to future integrations, such as access control and voice alarms.
