ASHE Recognizes Hospitals for Cutting Energy Consumption

Barnesville Hospital in Ohio has been named by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering the 2017 Energy Champion for demonstrating strong leadership in becoming a more energy-efficient facility and using saved resources to support patient care. Barnesville Hospital in Barnesville, Ohio, recorded an Energy Star score of 99 and the hospital’s facility team actively engages with other team members to make efficiency a priority for all.

In addition, dozens of hospitals have earned an Energy to Care Award for slashing energy use. The program, sponsored by Johnson Controls, encourages hospitals across the country to reduce their energy consumption. Facilities that reduce energy by 10 percent or more over the previous year — and previous Energy to Care winners who go on to reduce consumption by an additional 5 percent — are eligible to win an Energy to Care Award.
