Success Stories - Memorial Hermann

Overview of Case Study

Memorial Hermann Health System, one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in southeast Texas, is earning impressive accolades through its efforts to cut energy use.

Ten of the organization’s 14 hospitals earned ENERGY STAR certification from the EPA in 2018, including its two newest Houston-area hospitals in Pearland and Cypress, which opened in the last two years.

The fact that the latter two facilities earned the ENERGY STAR label only 13 months after first occupancy and one month after being eligible speaks to the success of Memorial Hermann’s ambitious energy efficiency efforts.
