Upgraded energy infrastructure

The healthcare sector in the United States is under unprecedented pressure to accomplish more with less. The management at Mount Sinai Brooklyn, a 212-bed acute-care community hospital, decided to find creative ways to maximize the effects of upgrading its energy infrastructure. They sought an energy project that would decrease the hospital’s operating costs while improving the patient care experience and reducing its environmental footprint.

While the hospital’s energy consumption could have been reduced by simply installing high-performance electromechanical equipment, Ecosystem’s engineers dug deeper to find innovative measures to reduce energy costs beyond this step. A steam to hot water conversion and an upgrade of the hospital’s heating plant further reduced energy use substantially.

The project also featured the installation of a combined heat and power plant to generate electricity on site. This measure improved the hospital’s resiliency by reducing dependency on electrical utilities by 40%.

‘‘Ecosystem has a different approach… You can tell they care; you can tell that they take this almost personally, that they want to prove they’re the best out there — and so far they have.’’
