Overview of Case Study
Trimming energy costs in a hospital is challenging, but that challenge is multiplied when a large system decides to cut energy costs. That’s what Matthew Atwong faced when he joined Adventist Health, a 19-hospital organization with facilities in California, Oregon, and Hawaii, in 2014.
Atwong is the corporate engineering director for JLL-Adventist Health, the partnership that operates Adventist’s facilities. He remembers that the initial ENERGY STAR® scores for Adventist’s facilities ranged no higher than 50. ENERGY STAR certification requires a score of 75, so the challenge was significant.
