Cost Effective solutions for Hospital & Healthcare Operations
Since the dawn of the COVID-19 pandemic, US hospitals have been operating in survival mode. As of July 2021, the country has reported a total of 34,067,912 cases - leading to 608,884 deaths, 22.9% more than expected.
There have been more than 2,317,457 hospital admissions due to COVID-19 alone. And while vaccination programs are halting the spread of the virus, there is still a long way to go.
The pandemic has had a devastating impact on hospital ﬁnances and operations, which were already suffering before COVID-19 arrived on US shores. Hospitals are being asked to do more with less. Staff are suffering from burnout and extreme stress while critical, non-COVID-related treatments are being delayed in masse.
With healthcare throughout the country at a tipping point, it’s crucial that hospitals safeguard themselves from additional concerns. They need to devise contingency plans in case of emergencies - guaranteeing that no matter what happens, they have the necessary resources in place to continue serving their patients.
Aggreko’s unparalleled experience, innovative solutions, and steadfast reliability help hospitals keep operations cost-efﬁcient, reliable, and prepared for contingencies - both during and after the pandemic.
Reliability: Keeping you safe and running during emergencies
Hospitals require ongoing access to power. If their power supply is affected even for a brief moment, patients’ lives are put at risk - and the great work that healthcare staff do can be undone in a ﬂash.
It’s therefore crucial that hospitals can access reliable alternative energy solutions in the event of a power outage. That’s where Aggreko comes in.
Cost-efﬁciency: Helping you save money on operational costs
It’s never been more important for hospitals to prioritize cost-efﬁciency. And when healthcare providers examine their costs, there’s one mainstay that is nearly always somewhere near the top of the list: energy expenses. Now is the time for hospitals to seek out alternative - yet cost-effective - energy sources.
Fortunately, there is an exciting new source that’s ready-made for hospitals and healthcare providers: our modular combined heating and power (CHP) solutions. The technology works by capturing - and using - the heat by-product that occurs when electricity is generated. This process is also known as ‘cogeneration’. The engines run on a single fuel, such as natural gas or biomass, and are situated on-site. This means hospitals will be able to make optimal use out of all the ‘waste’ heat that they generate.
Contingency planning: Ensuring you’re always ready for seasonal changes
Contingency planning helps protect hospitals from unforeseen risks and vulnerabilities—in turn, this protects patients’ and staffs’ safety. Aggreko’s experienced technical specialists work hand in hand with hospitals to devise unique, turnkey solutions that meet their speciﬁc needs. For more than 25 years, we have helped leading healthcare providers plan, design, and execute the right contingency plans for all eventualities.
