Security Solutions and Guards for Health and Aged Care



For quality healthcare security you need an integrated approach. A solution that covers all your potential vulnerabilities and works alongside your staff, enabling them to provide their important healthcare services and responsibilities without interfering with their daily activities. Whether you are operating a hospital, an aged care facility (such as a retirement village or nursing home) or other healthcare facilities your security requirements likely overlap. You need a way to cohesively protect your people and patients, your restricted stock and your sensitive and private records.

At Southern Cross Protection, we understand that every moment you have to spend complying with security procedures is time you could be spending treating and assisting your patients or residents. We aim to minimise this and find the right balance when protecting your staff, patients, visitors and assets.

  • Patient safety
