Hi Everyone! I am Tony the Technician. I work for Parsons Electric in Minneapolis, and last week I went to one of our jobsites in Wisconsin – ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano. Parsons is the electrical subcontractor for this project in a partnership with Van Den Heuvel Electric of De Pere. Our technologies division is also working on this project doing the design and low voltage scopes with One Source Technologies of Ashwaubenon, as our subcontractor doing a lot of the installation.

While I was at ThedaCare I worked with Tony Waters, Parsons Electric project manager, and Chris Todt, Parsons Technologies general foreman on many rooms in this new hospital addition.

We made sure the UPS system in the electrical room was installed properly. This system is the battery backup for the entire network of the hospital.

We also put some work into the patient rooms including running electrical wire and installing lights in the maternity room and in the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College practice room. We set up the power cords in the operating room to be pulled through the ceiling so all equipment used during surgery can be plugged in.

During my visit I learned a lot about healthcare construction and I’m excited to see the final results of this new hospital opening this September.
