Mercy Takes Commitment of Saving Energy to New Level
As part of its commitment towards saving energy, Mercy will be using eSight energy management software to streamline energy data collection and monitor energy usage across the hospitals to target areas for savings.
Mercy, as the largest employer in Springfield, is also the largest consumer of utilities in the city. This project is part of an ongoing effort to be a good steward of natural resources and a good neighbor to its community.
Paul Holmes, Western Sales Executive at eSight Energy said, “We are excited to be working with Mercy to improve their energy efficiency and identify areas for savings. We knew that eSight was the perfect solution to help them in achieving their goals towards a greener and more efficient facility.”
The project will begin at Mercy Hospital Springfield, and within a year roll out to all of its 31 hospitals. Its 300 outpatient facilities will follow. The software will allow Mercy to gather all of its utility data including gas, electric, and water usage into a single, central database for analysis. In addition, the Bill Verification Module allows Mercy to enter information about its utility bills and compare it with collected meter data to verify if the bill is correct. With a common goal of providing high-quality care and bettering the experience for every patient, Mercy’s commitment to a more energy-efficient facility will help it remain a leader in innovation and patient satisfaction.
Mercy is the sixth largest Catholic health care system in the United States and serves more than three million people annually. Mercy includes 32 hospitals, 300 outpatient facilities, 38,000 co-workers and 1,900 integrated physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. For more about Mercy, visit mercy.net.
