NorthBay Healthcare goes green via Siemens Building Technologies
With the assistance of Siemens Building Technologies, NorthBay Healthcare will adopt a range of energy efficient building system upgrades and retrofits, in order to drive down operating costs and improve patient and staff comfort. These improvements will be implemented in NorthBay Medical Center and NorthBay VacaValley Hospital located in Fairfield and Vacaville, Calif. respectively.

“Implementing this performance solution with Siemens is an excellent way to achieve our cost-savings goals because the energy-efficiency upgrades—which normally would consume our capital improvement budgets—are financed by the savings the upgrades are guaranteed to produce,” said Dave Mathews, NorthBay Healthcare’s director of plant operations and general services.

Facility-wide energy efficiency improvements have been designed to reduce electrical, heating, cooling, and waste disposal costs, as well as allow NorthBay Healthcare to generate some of its own electricity.
