South Seminole Hospital was built in 1984 but by 2013 was reaching the point at which its infrastructure — including air handlers, chillers, generators, medical gas systems, and supporting equipment — was well beyond end of life. The only newer components were two 450-ton chillers, a 750-kilowatt generator, and a replacement air handler. Following upgrades by the engineering and facilities team to power systems, HVAC components, and medical-air systems, the hospital now has the latest type EPSS system with paralleling gear, a modern chilled-water and support system, a reliable medical-air system, and two new air handlers. The renovations and retrofits delivered energy redundancy, control, reliability, and efficiency to hospital operations.
