Hospitals recognized for energy savings

  July 30, 2015

More than 20 hospitals have earned an Energy to Care Award for their work to slash energy use, reduce operational costs and free up more resources for patient care. The American Society for Healthcare Engineering recognized the hospitals’ efforts at its recent 52nd Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition in Boston.

The Energy to Care program, sponsored by Johnson Controls, encourages hospitals across the country to reduce their energy consumption by 10 percent or more over their baseline energy consumption. Since 2009, hospitals participating in the Energy to Care program have tracked more than $67 million in energy savings.
