Hospitals Save Estimated $67 Million by Tracking Energy Consumption


 

Estimated savings in energy costs posted by hospitals participating in the American Hospital Association’s affiliated American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) Energy to Care Program. Twenty participating hospitals received Energy to Care awards from ASHE in July for reducing their energy consumption by 10% or more. ASHE’s free program includes a benchmarking dashboard hospitals can use to track their own energy consumption, thereby saving energy and reducing costs.
