Highland General Hospital
Oakland, CA

Description Of Site

Highland General Hospital is a publicly owned and operated medical center that serves a wide variety of populations within the City of Oakland. Due to factors such as the site location in the city and providing health care to felons, Highland General Hospital requires a unique blend of security, safety, and human factors engineering in order to fulfill its mission in the community.

The Highland General Hospital campus consists of fourteen buildings, including an acute care hospital, emergency room, clinic, and felon ward that serves Alameda County.

Security By Design Involvement

Completed a preliminary security and safety survey, and submitted a report to Alameda County.

Of Special Interest

Significant security and safety improvements have been accomplished as a result of the initial report. All of these improvements were inexpensive, non-system, building and landscaping maintenance items.

Because of the age and layout of the buildings, communications paths are a challenge. Distances are long enough to require fiber optics as the major medium for communications. Fitting modern access control devices into old architecture is a serious challenge, as well.
