ARMC Earns EPA's ENERGY STAR Certification for Superior Energy Efficiency

Aiken, SC (April 12, 2013) -- Aiken Regional Medical Centers has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) ENERGY STAR certification, which signifies that the facility performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meets strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

"Aiken Regional Medical Centers is pleased to accept EPA's ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts," said Scott Ansede, Chief Operating Officer. "Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship while also lowering our energy costs." 

Earning ENERGY STAR certification highlights ARMC status within the top 25 percent of Healthcare Facilities in the nation with regard to energy performance. Aiken Regional Medical Centers improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to its facilities. 

"We have learned how to make thoughtful choices about ways we can use power more efficient. Aiken Regional Medical Centers has empowered me to make changes to conserve energy and make our patients stay more comfortable," said Ray Hoyer, Director of Facilities Management.

"Improving the energy efficiency of our nation's industrial facilities is critical to protecting our environment," said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commerical & Industrial Branch. "From the plant floor to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their facilities more efficient and earning EPA's ENERGY STAR certification."

ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 65 different kinds of products, 1.4 million new homes, and 20,000 commercial buildings and industrial plants that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. Over the past twenty years, American families and businesses have saved more than $230 billiion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.
