The opening of a new hospital last week in Florence was anything but usual for folks in our Licensing Division.  Since the hospital will also take care of prisoners, the staff had to work closely on the floor plan to make sure it met both medical and security needs.  The hospital had to be able to serve all patients, but needed to have extreme security to protect health and safety of all patients as well.  Thanks to their hard work – there are now twice the number of hospital beds available in Florence!  

Thanks to the licensing architects in Special Licensing: Rohno Geppert, Lois Adams, Savita Chandragiri, Connie Belden, Shirley Newman, and Nancy Klaum from Medical Licensing as well as Tom Salow and his team in Rules- Good Work!
