Lecterns and Sound Systems for Health Care Settings

Hospitals are unique institutions. Far more than just buildings where doctors treat patients, hospitals and other health care facilities are microcosm communities with sectors dedicated to education, business, entertainment, and even spiritual functions. In these contexts, hospital spaces frequently become presentation venues for groups of various sizes and purposes.

The right presentation equipment, including appropriate lecterns, sound systems, and other presentation tools, provides the foundation for effective communication in any of these settings.

Public speakers have used lecterns for centuries. In years past, an imposing lectern enhanced any speaker’s image as a voice of authority, along with providing a place to set down a printed speech and a glass of water. Today, however, the descendants of the traditional lectern deliver a host of options that greatly expand the range of esthetic and practical possibility. No need to settle for “one size fits all” -- with so many choices available, hospital administrators can select specific lecterns that perfectly fit the diverse functions within the institution. In addition, lecterns come in an expansive range of design styles to enhance any décor with a high degree of customization.

Consider these potential settings for lecterns in your facility:

3430 Multimedia Smart Podium in mahogany with built-in sound system

Lecture Halls:

In hospitals devoted to teaching along with treatment, a well-chosen lectern is an essential classroom tool. For large auditorium settings, the best lecterns will incorporate multi-media connectivity to give the speaker easy access to video and audio control.

Multi-media features do not have to drive style choices, however. High-tech options can be included in a wide range of furniture styles, from traditionally formal to sleekly modern.

Choose a lectern that complements the style of the lecture hall while providing comfort and convenience to the speakers who will be using it. Lecture rooms benefit from dignified styling combined with full-range sound capability.

SW3230 Multimedia Computer Lectern

Conference Rooms:

Small-room presentations frequently require the same level of media support as a lecture hall speech, but the speaker needs to manage different types of equipment to keep the information flowing. Space constraints play a pivotal role in the selection of lecterns for conference rooms.

When projectors and other devices are needed, a mobile computer cart/lectern combination is an efficient choice that can easily move from room to room. (Many models include lockable cabinets, so they can double as secure device storage units.)

SS124 Roving Rostrum Podium PA

Tabletop Lecterns:

Tabletop lecterns also play a versatile role, serving the functions of space-efficiency and mobility. Some tabletop units include full-featured sound systems for great presentation delivery in a portable package.

For occasional use, some tabletop lecterns can even be folded, collapsed, and stored flat.A tabletop lectern with integrated sound system allows for quick and easy set-up in conference rooms.

SN3250 Pinnacle Multimedia Lectern

Concierge / Valet Stands:

An attractive, weatherproof lectern provides a secure point of contact for arriving patients and guests. Highly durable lecterns made from a hard shell plastic are available in a limitless range of colors, combining an attractive appearance with great practicality. Streamlined elegance sets a dignified tone for hospital chapels.

Lockable storage, easy mobility, and customized logos are all valuable assets to consider for a concierge desk or valet stand. Lecterns made of waterproof hard shell plastic combine attractive design with durable performance indoors and out.

SN3500 Wood & Acrylic Floor Lectern


An appealing lectern enhances the quiet dignity of your facility’s sanctuary while providing presentation support for services. As a focal point of the chapel, the lectern should match the overall décor of the space.

Elegant lecterns are available in many varied materials, from solid wood to crystal-clear acrylic. If the chapel activities require sound amplification, look for lecterns with discreet built-in speakers or with connectivity to established house systems.

Portable Sound Systems: Taking Communication Anywhere

A simple, portable sound system will be put into service on a regular basis all over your facility. These units can support formal presentations in lecture halls, enhance audience interaction at social events, and deliver vital information to large groups of people during emergencies. Operating on battery power, they can be used indoors and out, and carried easily from place to place. As with lecterns, a variety of products are available to serve specific functions, including:

SW720 iPad/iPhone/iPod Wireless PA System

Personal PA Systems:

Wireless technology makes it easy to set up personal public address systems. Amplifiers can be set anywhere in the presentation space while the speaker uses a lectern or walks around the room using a cordless handheld, lapel, or headset mic.

Top quality choices offer a 16-channel frequency selection to reduce interference and ensure crystal clear sound. Personal PA systems allow for voice amplification anywhere, and connect to other media sources as well.

S602 Mity-Meg

Megaphones and Hailers:

For outdoor or emergency use, megaphones and hailers deliver powerful sound amplification in a simple one-piece package. The distinctive bullhorn style of these units can project sound as far as a half mile. Handheld megaphones provide a convenient, versatile way to deliver vital messages to groups of people.

The most versatile systems include extra attention-grabbing features, such as sirens and signal lights, to maximize effectiveness in crowds.

Small Investment, Big Impact:

For a small expenditure compared to the medical equipment needed for your hospital, the products described here deliver an outstanding return on investment. Lecterns and sound systems have the potential to be used by your staff for years to come in areas all over your facility.

Take the time to explore the many options available, or contact a dealer specializing in sound and presentation equipment to discuss your institution’s needs. Presentation clarity and effectiveness are always the key to a winning strategy. The right selections will deliver a long-term payoff, improving the appearance, effectiveness, and safety of your facility every day.
