Hospital reduces emissions, reduces energy costs by $84,000

Description

A subject site is a 455-bed hospital in the Midwest with a large laundry operation servicing three ancillary long-term care sites in addition to the main hospital and physician buildings. The main hospital building was built in 1965. SITUATION The Engineering staff was challenged to help the site (and IDN) meet overall budget reduction goals in energy use cost reduction driven by National Healthcare Legislation reimbursement reductions.

The Engineering staff also wanted to implement a set of solutions that drove long-term cost reductions that contributed to improving the overall operating efficiency of the central plant.
