A Prescription for Energy Savings

Many types of facilities can reduce energy bills by simply turning lights off when they’re not in use – but that recommendation doesn’t work well in healthcare environments. Unavoidable 24/7 operation leads to consistently high energy bills for healthcare buildings: hospitals, retirement centers, and long-term care facilities. Even when patient room lights are off, the hallway, lobby, nurses station, parking lot, and exterior lights need to be on.

Lighting also plays a critical role in patient care. It can impact medication-dispensing errors, patient safety and fall rates, comfort and satisfaction levels (especially if lights flicker or hum), and overall health of everyone who lives, stays, or works inside.

By investing in a lighting retrofit, you can reduce monthly operating costs and put more dollars toward important care initiatives, such as hiring additional clinicians.

“Retrofit kits can install directly into your existing fixtures so you don’t have to worry about relocating patients, residents, or staff members.”

Van Meter’s FlipSwitch brings you lighting as a service – a way to achieve a cost-effective lighting retrofit without a large capital investment. With valuable rebates and tax incentives currently available, lighting retrofits for healthcare facilities have never been more attainable. Retrofit kits can install directly into your existing fixtures so you don’t have to worry about relocating patients, residents, or staff members.

We will manage the entire retrofit process for you, from an onsite assessment and examination of current utility expenses, all the way through to making sure you get the rebates you expected. We present one monthly price, with labor and materials included – and we’ll run the numbers to show how much you’ll save as a result.
