Baystate Health’s (Baystate) ambition is for the health system to become the leader in helping create the most energy efficient, safe and effectively managed buildings in the health care industry.
Baystate performed initial benchmarking and saw numerous opportunities to improve including redoing controls, replacing boilers and pumps, retrocommissioning, lighting upgrades, and mechanical upgrades. For example, in the Operating Rooms (OR), they worked to improve the quality of air and partnered with the OR staff to show them the importance of this initiative. Not only were they able to improve communications between Facilities and Operating Room staff, but reduce the amount of energy spent as well.
