Helping McLaren Health Substantially Reduce Utility Costs Across the Entire Hospital Network


McLaren Health Care is committed to reducing our carbon footprint by decreasing our energy consumption. Implementing the Resolute software across 15 subsidiaries gave us the ability to review our utility use and, through their analytics, make informed decisions and decrease our utility use.

– Keith Miller, Director of Facilities Management

 

Challenge


McLaren Health Care's expansive portfolio encompasses 15 primary hospitals, each distinct in its age, design, functionality, and maintenance needs. With varying levels of BAS control and no unified corporate guidelines, each facility operated in isolation. This lack of standardization and the absence of a comprehensive energy footprint view for each facility posed significant challenges in achieving energy efficiency and sustainability at a portfolio level.
