All of our customers are best serviced by contacting the Customer Service Center at 3-4567. This area supports all facilities requirements on a 24-7 basis.
We discourage our customers from contacting mechanics directly as there may be many circumstances (ie: vacation, sick, another "hot" issue, moved to a different shift, etc.) that may prevent them from quickly responding to you. Contacting Customer Service Center (3-4567) will allow us to quickly dispatch your request. This will also enable us to electronically track your request.
PM frequency is based on numerous variables including the type of equipment, manufactures' recommendations, and life safety impact. The Facilities department put a maintenance management software package in place three years ago which electronically tracks and archives maintenance and repair information on all of our equipment. Over the past two years, we have been working on completely overhauling the PM program to take advantage of the data collection capabilities this new maintenance management software provides. At this point, all critical patient care and life safety equipment is loaded and running on this software package and historical information is being gathered.
"Facilities" is funded to maintain the building structure and systems (doors, lights, windows, walls, heating, cooling, etc.) The "program" is responsible for program related issues. Any questions regarding a specific issue should be directed to the Area Manager.
The transporting of empty boxes from the point of being unpacked to the point of being recycled requires manpower. Boxes are most efficiently transported in a condensed form and in doing so helps to reduce the Hospital's FTE need and overheard cost. In addition, the likelihood of someone being injured by sharps or other injurious materials being left in the container is significantly reduced when the boxes are broken down at the source.
The majority of mechanics are on site between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday though Friday. The majority of Building Service/Environmental Service workers are on site between 5:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Hospital is provided with 24-7 service.
