HOSPITALS AND HEALTHCARE
The U.S. hospital industry alone consists of over 15,000 facilities which all find themselves at the nexus of two external forces negatively impacting its financial well-being, shrinking revenues and increasing costs - notably for energy. Constraints of rising equipment costs, lower occupancy and unrecoverable reimbursements, an aging population and outdated facilities are colliding with increasing community demands, rising electricity costs and growing concerns about carbon emissions and the environment. Hospital executives everywhere are being mandated to increase energy efficiency, reduce their “carbon footprint” and in general to operate their buildings at the lowest possible cost per square foot via the implementation of new technologies.
Emergence has already experienced significant success in this market and has established its leadership in the hospital industry. In its first full year of operations Emergence is the only company in the United States who has transitioned five major hospitals to LED technology for general illumination rechanneling needless electricity costs back to their shareholders and the communities they serve.
In recognition for its efforts the University of Maryland, School of Nursing presented LifeBridge Health, one of Baltimore’s most prestigious hospital corporations the yearly award as “the most innovative energy solution for Maryland hospitals” at their Environmental Excellence in Health Care Conference for the implementation of Emergence’s linear LED replacement lamps. In support of this effort alone, Emergence delivered over 25,000 linear LED replacement lamps.
Emergence has successfully supported over 45 major hospitals since 2009, with approximately 500,000 linear LED replacement lamps – with near zero failures.
