Owensboro Health Regional Hospital receives prestigious award

by the100companies

Owensboro Health Regional Hospital is raising the bar as the first Kentucky hospital to receive the American Society for Health Care Engineering’s 2019 Excellence in Health Care Facility Management Award – an award given annually to one facility nationwide.

Through a partnership with Harshaw Trane, the hospital reduced energy consumption by 21.5% (saving over $1.7 million) through its five-year “journey to Energy Star” initiative. The Energy Star program allows businesses to reduce energy consumption and their carbon footprint while lowering energy costs – a win-win.

Instead of paying utility companies, these savings go toward providing quality patient care.
