Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital Awarded a Sixth Energy Star Label
For the sixth consecutive year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy have recognized Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital as an ENERGY STAR facility for its leadership in energy efficiency. This designation indicates the hospital building performs in the top 10 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency. It is the only hospital in Fort Bend County to achieve this designation.
When completed in December 2006, the 241,000-square-foot, six-story Memorial Hermann Sugar Land included high-efficiency HVAC systems and state-of-the-art lighting control systems. In 2009, extensive energy management changes were made to reduce energy consumption and improve indoor air quality while maintaining a patient-friendly environment. Among the energy savings initiatives were recalibration of every temperature control and staff education.
“It is an honor to once again accept the EPA’s ENERGY STAR label in recognition of our energy efficiency at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land,” said Facilities Director Todd Harvey.
