Muskogee Community Hospital Adopts Steril-Aire UVC Lights for Infection Control, Green Benefits
Date:7/30/2009

as made it the first healthcare facility to garner the EPA's "Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR(R)" recognition. MCH is also the first hospital to use a closed-loop ground source geothermal system that covers the facility's entire heating and cooling needs. Through this and other energy-saving measures, MCH is expected to be 24 percent more efficient than a regular hospital.

"The use of geothermal heat pumps in place of a traditional central HVAC system will give MCH much better zoned control while also saving energy," states Glenn Martin, president of Martin Engineering Design. "The small heat pump units, being located on a mechanical interstitial space, are very easy to access and service. Even with the ease of service, UVC offers an important advantage: It continuously cleans the coil and drain pan surfaces of biofilm buildup, reducing or eliminating the need for costly manual cleaning and keeping the units in 'as-new' condition so they run more efficiently," Martin explains. "As a result, UVC saves on maintenance and energy."

"Any time we can save money by being green, it's a win-win situation," adds MCH's Roberts, noting that "whether the savings go into better care or lower costs, the patients will benefit".

Muskogee Community Hospital opened in March 2009 to bring a higher standard of care to the community while creating a model of green healthcare design. The physician-owned facility includes 45 licensed patient rooms, four operating suites, three procedure rooms, Level IV emergency room and imaging. MCH is the first hospital in Oklahoma to be designed and built using the science-based Green Guide for Healthcare and the principles of the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED(R)) rating system for New Construction, and is currently awaiting LEED Gold certification.
