Samaritan Place – Saskatoon


The Customer:

Amicus provides resident directed, safe and respectful care in 200 suites built in 2012. Amicus Health Care Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation and subsidiary of the Catholic Health Ministry of Saskatchewan. Samaritan Place is testing a new health care model which will help meet the pressing unmet need for additional resident-responsive accommodation and service to be provided quickly.

The model removes the financial burden, especially from community groups and operators, to fund raise large amounts of money for construction and renovation of accommodation which supports residents’ needs. The Samaritan Place pilot project offers a model with the potential to address an existing shortage of resident-responsive accommodation by providing new facilities in a shorter time frame while protecting groups building new facilities against escalating construction costs.

The Challenge:

A local health region had recently committed over $5,000/bed to deliver nursecall with wireless capabilities, staff/resident safety/tracking, and the added efficiency of wireless call for help and communications. Amicus wanted to take advantage of these technologies, but could not justify the cost.

The Systems Solution:

AES technical designers, using our healthcare application experience designed a network based system that delivered all the facilities needs for less than half the anticipated cost. The system includes full nursecall, wireless call for help with facility wide pinpoint locating, visitor intercoms, operational and security video surveillance, wireless telephone, and business telephone system. Core supplier was Ascom, with various AES integrated pieces for an effective whole facility solution.

Costs were reduced by leveraging the robust network for multiple systems, and integrating competitive suppliers.

AES is proud of our innovative solution that helped Amicus to meet their efficient quality service delivery goals.
