Rapid response to preserve patient care

The largest voluntary, not-for-profi t health and teaching hospital
system in the south and central Bronx, BronxCare (formerly Bronx-
Lebanon Hospital Center) urgently needed to replace a chiller plant
at its Concourse Division that had stopped functioning. Maintenance
costs and downtime were on the rise, and the hospital could not use the
existing equipment much longer without compromising the comfort
of patients and healthcare practitioners. Moreover, additional cooling
capacity would be required in the foreseeable future.

Ecosystem built a

Ecosystem built a two-story mechanical room on the top floor to house
three new 500-ton chillers that increased the hospital’s cooling capacity.
A new variable flow pumping system now generates energy savings while
making it much easier to modulate cooling.

All work was carried out without affecting hospital operations, even though the cooling system was installed during the hottest part of summer. Through Ecosystem’s integrated approach to project design and close collaboration with BronxCare, the hospital’s necessary equipment upgrades were implemented for a lower construction cost and within a quicker timeframe than initially anticipated by the hospital.
