Healthcare

According to the department of energy, the healthcare industry spends over $6.5B in energy each year.  For nonprofits, $1 in energy saved is equivalent to generating $20 in new revenue. In for-profits, a 5% energy reduction is equivalent to raising earnings per share by a penny. WESCO Energy Solutions offers a wide variety of products and solutions to secure, maintain and enhance energy efficiency at your facility. 

Hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and medical office suites present unique challenges when upgrading to energy-efficient solutions. Maintaining the privacy, comfort, and health of patients and residents throughout a full facility upgrade requires a detailed installation plan. Upgrading lighting, networked controls, and HVAC systems give healthcare professionals and patients the ability to adapt the environment to their own preferences. Lighting in particular can have a positive effect on how patients feel, physiologically and psychologically.

We effectively supply healthcare facilities with dataCom, lighting, lamps, and wiring devices to suit their operational needs. We aim to streamline and scale healthcare operations while maximizing safety. Lighting for healthcare facilities should supply quality illumination while adhering to infection and sanitation standards. While virus mitigation measures, solar PV, and electric vehicle charging stations improve the safety and reliability of the facility - a full facility energy-efficient upgrade also has a positive impact on operational and energy costs.    

We maintain a humanist approach to healthcare lighting and are acutely aware of which areas in medical settings should receive varying levels of illumination. With so many variables that factor into providing quality patient care, expertise in properly lighting your facility is mandatory. At WESCO Energy Solutions, we embrace the lighting and electrical challenges healthcare institutions often face and provide cutting-edge solutions to exceed their expectations.
