Ronco has been called to the front-lines of defense in mission-critical facilities up and down the East Coast. Today, we are proud to share that we were chosen to partner with Commander Electric, SLS, and the Army Corps of Engineers last month to set up a temporary hospital on Long Island at SUNY College at Old Westbury. As system integrators specializing in healthcare communications, we were able to equip two of the four MASH-style tents with Rauland’s Responder 5000 nurse call system in a matter of days. This system allows for faster, more direct communication between patients and nurses while reducing the number of times clinical staff has to enter an infectious patient room – helping to stretch the use of personal protective equipment. Designed to accommodate overflow patients, this temporary care facility supports Nassau County and the hospitals that provide services in the area with additional resources as they manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

Great job to our New York City team who made this incredible implementation a reality: Mike DeMarco, RJ Discher, Arej Zeitouni, Esselie Thompson, Jamie Eden, Kenneth Martin, Nicholas Finizio, Sean Aloisi, and Stephen Webb! Shoutout to our partners Mark Howgate and Andrew Floerchinger with Rauland, a Division of AMETEK, Inc., Jim Haughland with Commander Electric, Jerry Botti with The Sweet Construction Group, and Henry Sauls with SLS for the support on this project! It truly takes a team!

We sincerely value the work of healthcare professionals during this unimaginable time. We look forward to continuing our work in Nassau County and the greater Long Island Area in the future – keeping our communities safe, healthy and connected with better patient care experiences, even in moments of crisis
