Midland Memorial Hospital (MMH) is pleased to announce that it has received an Energy to Care Award from the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association. Chuck Brooks, Director of Hospital Engineering, will accept this award on behalf of MMH at ASHE’s Health Care Facilities Innovation Conference in Anaheim, Calif., on July 24.

Energy to Care® is ASHE’s award-winning sustainability program dedicated to helping health care facilities track their energy, water and emissions reduction efforts and celebrates hospitals and health systems that go above and beyond in achieving their sustainability goals. MMH is one of 102 participating facilities to receive this distinction in 2024, representing just 2.3% of facilities enrolled in the Energy to Care Program. Participants record and report their energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions, in the Energy to Care Dashboard. Energy to Care Award-winning facilities demonstrate a 10% greater reduction in energy use intensity over the previous year, or 15% over two years.

“This award is a significant achievement for health care facilities taking meaningful steps toward decarbonization and I congratulate the Midland Memorial Hospital team for reaching this milestone in their sustainability journey,” says Kara Brooks, MS, LEED AP BD&C, senior associate director of sustainability at the American Hospital Association. 

“We are honored to receive Energy to Care® Award. This achievement underscores our commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for our patients, staff and community. We are proud to lead the way in reducing our carbon footprint and promoting a sustainable future,” said Abraham Bejil, Vice President of Facility Services.

Participation in the Energy to Care Program has seen consistent growth since its inception in 2006. More than 4,400 facilities have participated since 2010, and in the entire life of the program, health care facilities have seen a combined savings of over $550 million dollars reallocated to patient care.
