Smarter Strategies Let You Focus Energy on Your Patients
First and foremost, for any healthcare facility’s energy plan, failure is not an option. That’s why, with electricity and gas representing some of the largest expenditures for these facilities, smarter energy strategies focused on reliability, efficiency and lowering costs are critical.
The Department of Energy's Hospital Alliance estimates that the nation's healthcare facilities spend more than $8 billion on energy costs each year1—enough to cover the average annual salary of about 100,000 registered nurses. With increasing operational costs, hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country are exploring ways to better manage their energy demand.
