CHICAGO –Barnesville Hospital in Ohio has been named the 2017 Energy Champion for demonstrating strong leadership in becoming a more energy efficient facility and using saved resources to support patient care. In addition, dozens of hospitals have earned an Energy to Care Award for slashing energy use. The American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association will recognize these hospitals—as well as local affiliated chapters who competed against each other in an energy savings competition—at its 54th Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition August 6-9 in Indianapolis.

The Energy to Care program, sponsored by Johnson Controls, encourages hospitals across the country to reduce their energy consumption. Facilities that reduce energy by 10 percent or more over the previous year—and previous Energy to Care winners who go on to reduce consumption by an additional 5 percent—are eligible to win an Energy to Care Award.

The Energy Champion Award recognizes a single facility that demonstrates outstanding leadership in energy efficiency. Barnesville Hospital in Barnesville, Ohio, recorded an ENERGY STAR® score of 99 and the hospital’s facility team actively engages with other team members to make efficiency a priority for all.
