Engineers Recognized for Role in Energy Savings

November 2006 - Energy Efficiency

Six hospital engineers recently received awards from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering under its Energy Efficiency Commitment (E2C) program. The program is a collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to encourage and facilitate reductions in energy consumption.

The awardees and their energy reductions are:

* Delbert Reed, Shriner’s Hospitals for Children in Houston — 48 percent
* Bill McCully, Northwest Medical Center, Springdale, Ark. — 13 percent
* Ronny Gann, West Jefferson Medical Center, Marrero, La. — 10 percent
* Gary Thompson, St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, Maryville, Mo. — 13 percent
* Roger Neifert, Yuma (Ariz.) Regional Medical Center — 17 percent
* Jennifer Kearney, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York City — 10-40 percent in four facilities

The E2C program focuses on sharing fundamental concepts, real data, proven strategies, financial tools and success stories by ASHE members. It provides knowledge to use in uncovering the energy savings inherent to an organization’s building design and operations.
