Facility upgrades save Texas healthcare facility $189,000 annually

June 9, 2017

Childress Regional Medical Center (CRMC) near Childress, Texas, has completed a energy savings performance contract to update aging equipment, resulting in total operational savings of $189,219 per year, according to an article on the My High Plains website 

The project upgraded the facility’s energy performance, reduced maintenance costs and improved occupant comfort. 

The initiatives included infrastructure replacements, installation of new air control and chilled water systems, HVAC and VAV box replacements and improvements to the hot water system.

“Because CRMC serves a large rural population as the primary healthcare facility of the region, we saw these improvements as a critical investment in the community,” said John Henderson, CRMC CEO. “We’re also excited to announce that these much-needed upgrades were completed at no cost to taxpayers thanks to performance contracting.”
