Sprinkler instead of fire rated doors

I have an Ambulatory Surgery Center that needs a 1 hour fire rating to separate it from the adjacent functions in a medical office building and it is under the NFPA 101 2012 edition. The waiting room has existing glass doors that are not fire rated that open to a one level lobby (it is a 4 story building). I am planning to add some dedicated sprinkler heads over the door for compliance and need to confirm where in the code this equivalency is acceptable or maybe even not needed.
