Helping McLaren Health Care Reduce Utility Costs by Nearly $2 Million Across Hospital Network


McLaren Health Care is committed to reducing our carbon footprint by decreasing our energy consumption. Implementing the Resolute software across 14 subsidiaries gave us the ability to review our utility use and, through their analytics, make informed decisions and decrease our utility use; these decisions have helped us to quickly achieve an 8% savings from our baseline with some facilities seeing 18% savings”

Director of Facilities Management

 

Challenge


The McLaren Health Care portfolio consists of 14 main hospitals, which vary in age, construction, function, maintenance required, and levels of BAS control. All hospitals were operating independently with no corporate standards or specifications to guide them in the operation and maintenance of their assets. In addition, there was no portfolio-level visibility into the energy footprint for each facility, making energy efficiency and sustainability across the portfolio nearly impossible.
