Lafayette General Medical Center’s growth is obvious with a quick drive past the hospital’s ongoing construction site.  A less evident area of expansion is in its security capabilities. Hospital security with AMAG Technology dates back to 1993, when the company first installed AMAG readers on three hospital entrances.

Today, Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) has implemented a system-wide network, securing facilities even beyond the main hospital campus, utilizing AMAG Technology’s Symmetry™ Professional Security Management System.

Anjanette Hebert is Director of Security, Safety and Emergency Preparedness for Lafayette General Medical Center, the flagship hospital for Lafayette General Health system that comprises LGMC and numerous other health care facilities.  In 1993, Hebert began her working relationship with AMAG Technology.  She worked with Delta Audio at the time and stuck with the same company and group of people through several buyouts and name changes.  Today, Hebert maintains that partnership with the systems integrator STANLEY Security.

The Lafayette General Medical Center campus has grown extensively through the years.  Nearby LGH facilities protected by Symmetry include, Lafayette General Surgical Hospital, CyberKnife® Center of Louisiana, four medical office buildings, three office buildings, two warehouse spaces, two parking garages and four surface lots.  Symmetry protects one of the parking garages and one surface lot.  Two clinics located in a different part of the city are remotely monitored by Symmetry.
