There are several Arizona hospitals that are taking steps to reduce energy consumption. The Phoenix Children’s Hospital is adding on a $588 million expansion, and made a commitment to green building practices with the expansion. Features include the construction of a Central Energy Plant that powers the hospital campus using an 800-ton water-to-water heat pump chiller that will conserve 5.6 million gallons of water each year, reduce waste water contributions by 600,000 gallons per year, and reduce natural gas usage by 70 percent. They are also implementing sun screens and low-e windows to help reduce the high impact of solar heat.
Catholic Healthcare West, a system of hospitals with locations in Arizona, are also undergoing retrofits to help save electricity, natural gas, and water. Check out the links below for more information.
