FAYETTEVILLE – Sept. 18, 2023 – Cape Fear Valley Health is proud to announce the successful implementation of a cutting-edge weapons detection system across its hospital facilities. This new system is part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of safety and security for our patients, employees, and community.

The advanced weapons detection system utilizes state-of-the-art technology to quickly and accurately identify potential threats. With its implementation, Cape Fear Valley aims to create a safe environment that prioritizes the well-being of everyone who enters our hospital facilities.

“We recognize that safety is paramount in providing exceptional care,” said Michael Nagowski, CEO of Cape Fear Valley Health. “By investing in this new weapons detection system, we are reinforcing our commitment to safeguarding our patients, employees, and visitors. Our primary focus is to provide a secure and comfortable environment for all.”

This innovative system, deployed throughout all Cape Fear Valley hospital locations over the last few weeks, offers enhanced security measures without compromising compassionate care by making it both faster to enter the facilities compared to passing through a metal detector and providing more secure than simple metal detector technology can offer. The implementation of this weapons detection system represents a significant milestone in the health system’s ongoing efforts to ensure the highest level of safety within our healthcare organization.

Visitors can expect faster entrances with less hassles as a result of the new system, as most low-density non-threat metal objects will no longer be a cause for a secondary search. Objects like keys and coins will not need to be removed before stepping through this security measure. Traditional metal detectors that have been posted at these entrances will be removed.

Cape Fear Valley Health remains dedicated to embracing the latest technologies and implementing robust security measures. Armed security officers will continue to be stationed at all public entrances in the hospitals. Visitors will also continue to be asked to produce a photo identification card, such as a driver’s license, and be entered into the health system’s visitor management system as part of the visitation process.
