LG CNS HEALTHCARE SOLUTIONS

LG CNS Healthcare Solutions is led by a physician and team of experienced operators to provide innovative technologies, solutions and consulting to long-term and post-acute care providers.

LG Electronics USA Air Conditioning Technologies
In senior housing, extended care facilities and hospitals, it’s important to create a consistently comfortable environment regardless of weather or other external factors so residents or patients don’t suffer adverse health effects or discomfort from exposure to unnecessary temperature swings. By proactively addressing external conditions, the LG Multi V 5 outdoor system – 2017 Environments for Aging Award winner – provides an effortless comfort solution for long-term care and senior housing facilities.
Rather than the entire HVAC system set to one temperature, the Multi V 5 allows for each zone to be set independently. With a heat recovery system, different zones can be simultaneously heating and cooling affording residents the ability to precisely control the temperature in their space. The Multi V 5 features a new biomimetic fan design, which enables the unit to operate more efficiently and increase airflow, while reducing the perceived noise level by about 20 percent for a quiet system that doesn’t interrupt residents’ activities or rest.
Facility owners and operators will experience a more substantial return on investment with this variable refrigerant flow system. With a smaller installation footprint throughout the entire facility, the Multi V 5 has comparable first costs to a simple, inexpensive HVAC system due to its reduced structural and architectural requirements. In addition to the cost savings of its compact and lightweight design, the Multi V 5 system, named by Buildings as “Top Money Saving Product 2017,” also has a lower operational cost than traditional HVAC systems.
LG Electronics USA Commercial Displays
With a strong focus on long-term care and senior housing facilities, advanced video displays from LG Electronics are designed to streamline processes for medical practitioners and foster a positive patient experience. LG Electronics USA Business Solutions is the leading provider in the United States of premium large format displays, desktop and medical monitors and commercial TVs for various healthcare facilities.
LG Electronics commercial digital signage displays communicate entertainment and educational information to visitors and patients through hospital directories, information kiosks and menu boards. Plus, LG digital signage can display emergency notifications quickly and effectively. In-room applications such as LG’s Pro:Centric Smart IPTV Platform is designed to interchangeably display entertainment and important information, deepening engagement with the patient while providing real-time information.
LG Electronics USA LED Lighting
From wireless controllers to troffers and downlights, LG Electronics brings advanced LED lighting solutions to the healthcare industry. The LG Simple Choice LED troffer line offers a low-cost option for long-term care facilities seeking to upgrade their lighting capabilities. Equipped with LG’s Sensor Connect technology, the troffer – available in 2x2 (two-foot by two-foot) and 2x4 (two-foot by four-foot) configurations – can be programmed with customizable light levels, allowing for greater energy savings and fixture management flexibility.
Also new for the healthcare industry is LG’s 10-inch Commercial Retrofit downlight. Now offering a range of downlight options in 6-, 8- and 10-inch sizes, LG is giving extended care facilities the flexibility to choose a solution that meets their exact needs. The new downlight is optimized with LG’s Smart Multi Sensor technology and is wireless lighting control-ready with ZigBee technology, both of which can be controlled through LG’s mobile app.
