Virginia Mental Health Hospital Improves Patient Comfort, Receives Award for Energy-Saving Renovations
Date:11/13/2008

ROANOKE, Va., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Catawba Hospital, a state-run psychiatric hospital in the Catawba Valley of Virginia, recently completed extensive renovations to its indoor comfort systems to make the buildings more energy efficient and improve patient and staff comfort.

The hospital anticipates $1 million in savings over five years from reduced power usage and decreased maintenance costs associated with the new heating, ventilating and air conditioning system.

Furthermore, the upgraded system satisfies Gov. Tim Kaine's Executive Order 48, mandating that state institutions reduce energy costs and instill performance contracting practices that help pay for building upgrades over time.

For its success in reducing energy use, Catawba Hospital will be recognized with the Trane Energy Efficiency Leader in Healthcare Award. Jason Bingham, district manager for Trane in Virginia, will present the award to Jack Wood, Catawba's director and Charles Law, its chief operating officer, at noon on Nov. 14 at the hospital.

Tours and interviews are available after the award presentation upon request.

"It is critical for us to provide our patients the most comfortable environment to heal while also being good stewards of our natural resources. We selected the Trane solution because it allowed us to accomplish these goals, while working within our budget constraints."

Putting more pressure on the situation was Executive Order 48, issued by Gov. Tim Kaine. It mandates th
