Health Care Industry Fundamentals

It is important that facility managers comply with the various codes and standards applicable to health care facilities. In addition, there are driving factors that affect the operations and maintenance of health care facilities, including regulatory requirements, clinical needs, and financial management.

ASHE has developed 52 actionable ECMs in eight categories to help facilities management teams better manage energy use and advance your health care facility’s sustainability journey.
Learn more about how to end the use of fossil fuels at your health care facility.
This category of emissions includes fossil fuel-powered equipment performed by health care organization staff.
Carbon emissions associated with energy use are often a mix of on-site usage and off-site emissions from regional utilities can be complicated to account for.
Water usage in health care organizations is a less obvious source of carbon emissions. Learn more about its impact.
HVAC equipment using refrigerants can include packaged rooftop units, direct expansion split systems, chillers, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems and several others. Different equipment systems can contain different refrigerant types with varying emissions potential.
This webinar, hosted by PureLine and Sanipur, is tailored for healthcare facility managers and engineers who are at the forefront of maintaining hospital water systems.
Site-of-care shifts are not new. But new forces–like regulatory flexibilities, payment expansions, purchaser preferences, innovation, and private equity funding for non-hospital sites–are accelerating shifts away from the hospital setting. Discover how you can prepare for these changes.
