Medical Provider: Data Center Construction and Design


A large, $3B medical healthcare provider with 10+ hospitals,150+ clinics, and 60+ pharmacies desired a data center assessment and future data center strategy. Their current facility was aged (25+ years) and was only a Tier I facility, which was not suitable in terms of healthcare standards.


After completing the assessment, Excipio provided alternative strategies that included colocation, potential buildings available for lease, and build new options.


The client chose to build a new, Tier III data center. Excipio engaged with the client from the initial strategy, solution selection, data center design, construction, and commissioning.
