Modernization Strategies for Essential Electrical Systems in Health Care Facilities

Modernization Strategies for Essential Electrical Systems in Health Care Facilities cover

By Justin Carron, Anil Sharma, Matt Badac

Essential electrical systems in many health care buildings across America are rapidly reaching, or have already exceeded, their useful life expectancy. Moreover, because many hospitals are faced with the challenge of balancing profitability and operational disruptions with long deferred infrastructure improvements, many simply are not performing the maintenance required to uphold compliance with all necessary standards. This monograph will discuss why prioritizing the strategic modernization of the essential electrical systems in health care facilities is an effective solution for regulatory compliance and continuation of life safety and presents strategies for updating critical aging infrastructure that control costs and consider budget limitations while maximizing operator care and safety.
