Modern hospitals consume nearly the same energy as those of the 1960s, lagging behind other building types. Yet some facilities stand far ahead in energy performance, resulting in an emerging market to retrocommission hospitals shortly after construction, often cutting utility costs 20 to 30 percent with little capital expenditure. Why build it twice? How can the planning team sell energy enhancements up front, rather than as a retrofit? This session will unpack the issue with clear examples and actionable steps.

One of the largest challenges for facility managers in establishing ENERGY STAR® as the design standard for their organizations is proving the value of the savings to key decision makers. This session will showcase projects from Memorial Hermann Health System, Ascension Health, and Mercy Health, and present data to quantify the costs and savings associated with the decision to design to this standard.

This session will cover the basics components, categories, and outcomes of an intelligent health care campus master plan. Participants will also take part in an ideation style workshop similar to the one BayCare Health used to develop its plan. Implementation strategies, financial costs, and lessons learned will be shared to provide participants with a comprehensive view of intelligent campus master plan strategies that they can use on their campus.

Where does one start in the pursuit of the coveted Energy Star rating? Energy Star is a nationally recognized gold standard for energy efficiency. Why this is not every facility managers primary goal requires a deeper understanding of the true cost of such a milestone accomplishment. In this presentation the audience will learn and understand what the true cost is in not seeking Energy Star for their facility. This presentation will share demonstrated applications and outcomes from multiple facilities that have successfully implemented this program. Attendees will walk away with a very clear understanding of the steps they need to take and the communications they need to have to empower their teams and facility in reaching the coveted Energy Star rating for their building.

Many health care facility professionals have “inherited” older HVAC systems that were installed in their hospital’s original construction. These systems may be incapable of delivering the critical level of environmental control necessary in today’s ever-demanding patient care model. This technical session will give these professionals a fundamental understanding of the basic principles that must be considered in order to properly control their hospital OR. It will establish how temperature and humidity interact to create a satisfying and productive health care environment and provide information to assist the health care facility professional in analyzing a hospital OR when troubleshooting the space. Various HVAC retrofit scenarios to remedy ailing ORs will also be discussed.
