Non Fire Retardant Wood on a 1hr Fire wall

In our communication room at our LTAC Hospital we have most of our equipment mounted on plywood. All walls of the communication room are fire rated for 1hr. My question is per NFPA 101 19.1.6.6., do we have to now remove these plywood sheets and replace them with Fire Retardant Treated Wood, or will the fact that all walls are 1hr fire rated suffice?
