Overview of Case Study
Embracing energy efficiency to attain measurable results is a facility-wide effort. With the support of Aurora Sinai’s leadership, a culture of continuous improvement was and continues to be sustained by all departmental teams. The medical center’s facilities operations team identifies improvement opportunities and are empowered to make operational changes. An engaged leadership team set aside capital to support these identified opportunities.
While capital is certainly vital to improving energy efficiency, seemingly small actions taken by every team member can make a big difference. “During all department staff huddles and meetings, department leaders are encouraged to employ directed conservation efforts, such as turning off unused equipment or lighting,” says Mike Collova, facilities manager.
