The BayCare Health System of hospitals in Florida has increased security measures at most of its facilities now, including metal detector screenings.

Most BayCare hospital facilities will now require visitors to pass through a metal detector screening and show identification before they can enter. Visitors who successfully pass these two steps will receive the photo ID badge required to enter the facility.

According to John Nicely, director of safety and security, BayCare began implementing these security measures last year and will continue rolling them out during the next few months.

BayCare is the largest not-for-profit healthcare provider in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. The system is not revealing which hospitals have metal detectors in place, but St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Petersburg started using them last week, according to Catalyst.

“Safety is a primary concern for BayCare. Nothing specifically has happened at our hospitals but we want to keep a safe and secure environment for our patients, physicians and anyone in our buildings,” Nicely said.

BayCare hospitals that have added metal detectors have them installed at all public entrances, including the emergency department and ambulance entrances.
