Atlantic Health System Security Team Recognized by Security Magazine

Only Hospital Security Department in NJ to Place in Top 10

November 2016, Morristown, NJ – Atlantic Health System, a leading health care delivery system in New Jersey, was ranked 10th nationally among the largest health care security systems by Security Magazine in the national publication’s annual Top 500 ranking. Atlantic Health System was the only hospital security department in New Jersey to place in the top 10.
The annual release of the top 500 security departments rankings represent more than 20 markets, ranging from manufacturing, banking and casinos/hotels to Major League Baseball and the National Football League. It identifies companies that place quality over quantity.

“Much larger hospital systems than ours weren’t even ranked, which shows the competitive nature of this accomplishment,” said Alan Robinson, chief security officer, and director, Protection and Security Services/Emergency Management. “The security officers who protect our employees, physicians, volunteers, students, visitors, vendors and most of all our patients deserve all the credit.”

The recognition is for the Atlantic Health System security’s overall program and the cutting-edge, efficient and effective initiatives developed and implemented, particularly addressing patient and staff safety.
These include crisis training and exercises, as well as:

  • NurseSafe, WorkSafe, EMTSafe and PhysicianSafe programs designed to train staff on how to address and resolve workplace violence
  • The Red Cell Program, which uses undercover security agents to test the organization’s security system. This program was also previously recognized by The Joint Commission as a best practice
  • CDT Training for the organization’s security officers to respond to and diffuse incidents involving violent individuals

Security 500 creates a reliable database for organizations to measure themselves in comparison to the performance of their colleagues. It establishes a benchmarking program among security organizations, allowing them to see where they stand in this ongoing peer-review process.
"We are thrilled to announce that Atlantic Health System has once again earned a spot on the Security 500 report," said Diane Ritchey, editor-in-chief of Security Magazine. "Atlantic Health System's enterprise security department, led by Alan Robinson, has earned the considerable trust of its many stakeholders, and therefore, receives funding for its security program, which consistently leads to their high ranking on the Security 500 report.  Alan is a true enterprise security leader who is strategically focused on enterprise risk management, and thus, manages risk at Atlantic Health System so that the organization and its business units can achieve their goals. It is an honor to highlight such a successful, resilient, and unique security program."
