Health care facilities

Teaching hospitals | Hospitals | Community nursing | Care homes

Hospitals are places patients, visitors, staff and facility service teams move around every day. Annexes and extensions, restructuring measures and maximum security demands must also be taken into account by a locking system. How does this work? EVVA has the answers.

Your requirements:


  • Ample cylinder range Because you intend to secure lifts, lockers and pharmaceutical cabinets using a single locking system
  • 100% copying protection Because you run highly sensitive research facilities and pharmaceutical cabinets must be absolutely secure
  • Flexible key assignment Because you coordinate community nurses looking after a changing pool of patients and prefer not to have to deal with complex key management processes
  • Organised flow of persons Because you need simple access control for meeting and presentation facilities

Agios-Andreas General Hospital Patras

alt text
Product: EPS
Facility type: Health care facilities
Country: Greece

Agios-Andreas Hospital in Patras, Greece, was seeking to satisfy high levels of secure and flexible access management requirements for their most recently completed building. Owners opted for EPS (Extended Profile System) made by EVVA, the classic system for good levels of security.

Agios-Andreas Hospital in Patras with a total capacity of 400 beds is the city's second largest hospital and one of the largest in the Peloponnese. It consists of five buildings, three of which are in close proximity to each other. A new wing was added in 2011 which today accommodates three clinics: die surgery, pathology and orthopaedics. Ekter SA as the building contractor started construction of a new development in 2013 which required a more complex locking system and had to satisfy high requirements in terms of security.

EVVA'´s Greek partner Expo SA was able to meet the requirements with the reliable EVVA EPS. The project is still in construction. However, completion (including medical equipment and wards) has been anticipated for the not too distant future.

Healthcare center in Šmarje pri Jelšah

Product: Xesar
Size: 101-500 units
Facility type: Health care facilities
Country: Slovenia

Xesar as the ideal retrofitting solution for Šmarje pri Jelšah health center

Šmarje pri Jelšah health center is 24/7 available to more than 32.000 residents from six surrounding municipalities. It has been operating independently since 2002 and has six dislocated units.

In 2020, the administration decided to invest in access control, because the old mechanical locking system turned out to be too expensive. The keys were getting lost and the control over the keys was not optimal. Given that this facility is open 24/7 and it is the place where risk groups visit, it is necessary to maintain appropriate hygiene and health standards. That is why they wanted an investment that could be realized as soon as possible and would not require additional construction work.

Xesar 3.0 was therefore the right answer because it allows installation without additional construction work and interventions in doors or walls. They decided to install the components in all units at once.

Our installers installed these 150 components in a few days, because the installation is very simple and fast.


Saarländische Klinik für Forensische Psychiatrie (SKFP) [Saarland Clinic for Forensic Psychiatry]

Product: MCS
Size: > 500 units
Facility type: Health care facilities
Country: Germany

MCS for the highest possible safety.

The new building for the Saarländische Klinik für Forensische Psychiatrie (SKFP) comprises three high-security wards for a total of 60 patients. Patient rooms should have a high level of safety for patients. In order to comply with this level of security, the MCS locking system, which is completely uncopyable, was considered. Full protection against copying and the almost impossible unauthorised opening of the MCS convinced project planners and decision-makers. Another important factor was the versatile use of MCS, such as the knob cylinder with SOS function, the thumb turn cylinder for lifts, lever cylinders or furniture locks. 

EVVA impressed! Equipment of the existing buildings and further extension have been agreed. In addition, a combination with the Xesar electronic locking system is currently being discussed for some areas.

Josefsheim community centre - assisted living facilities, Hörbranz

alt text
Product: 4KS
Size: 1-100 units
Facility type: Health care facilities
Country: Austria

The Josefsheim community centre is an assisted residential facility for the highest demands. The building itself was brought up to the latest security level as part of a renovation. Consequently, a combined locking system with AirKey and 4KS (4-curve System) was installed.

The director of the community centre was impressed with AirKey from the very beginning. The possibility of using a smartphone to open doors and, thus, to do without any keys, is an absolute advantage that was a decisive factor for him. The simple administration of granting key authorisations or deleting lost identification media, such as cards or key tags, is also very important for welfare institutions, as changes are very common. Thus, the decision was made very quickly and the entire exterior of the community centre was equipped with AirKey.

The mechanical locking system 4KS was chosen for the interior spaces, such as offices and the serviced apartments. The springless system is characterised, in particular, by the convenient, easy key insertion –a very important feature for a residential facility that is designed with elderly people and people with disabilities in mind.

Our EVVA Partner Vogler KGtook on the assembly and support for the system to the customer’s full satisfaction.

Product: 4KS
Size: > 500 units
Facility type: Health care facilities
Country: Austria

Vienna Veterinary University has been well-known for its quality of teaching, research and medical treatment for animals for now over 250 years and the institution places a great deal of importance on cutting-edge technologies and security.

Flexible access control and the ability to manage it are basic requirements for smooth processes. With over 4,000 doors, openly overlapping areas and a number of different locking groups, the mechanical locking system at VETMED had to be ideally configured and adapted. Unauthorised duplicate keys and opening attempts with cylinder picking must be technically impossible. The EVVA 3KSplus system with springless locking sliders and three-curve technology merges all those technical requirements to also implement mechanical systems within such an organisationally complex structure and still leave plenty of room for future extensions. Planned with EVVA expertise and produced to meet well-renowned EVVA quality standards.

This object was realised with the locking system 3KSplus, which corresponds to today's 4KS locking system.
