The Schoen Clinic London is a highly specialised spinal and orthopaedic hospital, offering fast assessment, diagnosis and world class treatment outcomes.
Opened in summer 2018, the Schoen group own 23 private hospitals across Germany, employing 10,000 staff and treating 300,000 patients a year – the London hospital is the group’s first venture in the UK.
Internationally recognised for quality measurement and pioneering treatments, the Schoen group is passionate about delivering a world-class experience for its patients; with this in mind, the provision of a patient entertainment system in keeping with its state-of-the-art facilities was high on the agenda.
“Key to Schoen’s remit was the provision of international and foreign language channels on the same channel map as Sky and freeview programming” said head of healthcare sales Jes Redgard “we also needed to make sure that the channel listing was logical and intuitive, enabling patients to find their favourite channels quickly and easily.’
Airwave installed headend equipment and a DVB-S to DVB-T tuner to utilise the building’s existing satellite infrastructure and recommended Samsung’s HGEE690 SMART TV series, installing a 40” screen in each bedroom.
A further challenge presented itself in the form of specially designed recesses (built to ensure a flush-to-wall aesthetic for the in-room TVs) that weren’t deep enough to house the TVs! This required the sourcing of market-leading ultra-slim brackets to ensure a flush TV to wall finish. A minor, but particularly important detail!
