Responding to an increasing demand for chemotherapy services, The Vanderbilt University Medical Center added a new clinic consisting of nearly 100 beds to their cancer center. With a unique new approach intentionally focusing on increasing patient comfort, VUMC included flat screen televisions in every room.
After careful consideration, Vanderbilt found the Audio Spotlight system to be the best solution for providing TV sound to their patients, without the noise problems associated with traditional loudspeakers, or the hassle and hazard of headphones and pillow speakers. The Audio Spotlight speakers have been praised by patients and staff alike, and Vanderbilt plans on continuing to use them as they expand their facilities.

When Winchester Hospital broke ground on their brand new cancer treatment facility on Washington Street, a primary goal was to make the transfusion process as painless as possible for their patients. Despite the completely open-concept layout of the treatment floor, television screens were added at every seat position – 28 in total. Audio Spotlight speakers installed directly above each provided a narrow beam of sound to every patient independently, despite being only a few short steps away from one another.
Any patient that wants to watch their own choice in programming can do so without bothering any other patient that prefers a different programming, or to simply read, or even sleep comfortably. The nursing staff, whose own desk stations are also scattered about the open floor, have truly come to appreciate the peace and quiet afforded by the Audio Spotlight speakers, and the tranquility of the facility atmospehere.
Winchester selected the AS-24i model, due to its ease of installation. The speaker panels each replaced a standard 24" ceiling tile by dropping straight onto the existing grid without any additional necessary hardware or causing any architectural distruption.
