Lighting fixtures are an extremely important part of a healthcare facility. A lot of these facilities run for long hours and need adequate lighting at all times. When operating on patients and saving lives, there is no room for error. Having a well-lit facility and proper medical lighting equipment is critical so that medical professionals can visually see everything that they need to see with no problem.
At GreenBee Energy Efficiency, we can work with small doctor’s offices or large hospitals. No matter the size of your facility or the upgrade needed, we are energy efficiency experts and have worked with numerous medical offices to install energy efficient LED lighting.
LED lighting upgrades and retrofits can positively impact healthcare environments and provide several benefits, including the following:
- Energy Savings and Cost Savings. LEDs, when compared with fluorescent lighting, can result in as much as 80 percent reduction in energy costs.
- Decreased Labor and Downtime. Each time a lamp burns out, a labor cost is incurred for repair. In a critical area like an operating room, this could result in downtime as well.
- Practice Sustainability, Demonstrate Leadership. Large medical facilities have a duty to demonstrate environmental leadership in their communities. Healthcare facilities should recognize the need for climate protection.
- A Better Patient and Staff Environment. Several studies have shown that LED lighting can benefit healthcare facilities by accelerating patient recovery time, decreasing anxiety in patients and employees, and increasing productivity among employees.
