Building and Grounds
The Building & Grounds team consists of Facilities Management, Engineering, Clinical Engineering and Environmental Services.
Some of the key initiatives the Building & Grounds Services team is working on include:
Energy savings - On January 14, 2014, LRH began the operation of a $2.8M Biomass plant to cut energy costs. To date, there has been a 90% savings compared to using fuel oil. The Biomass plant supports existing local, renewable and sustainable fuel business keeping money in the local economy. 95% of the biomass money stays in state. In addition, our new Medical Office Building is heated and cooled by 48 geothermal wells.
Facilities Engineering and Environmental Services staff - There are 9 Facilities and 14 Environmental Services staff members. In 2014, each employee was certified in First Aid and CPR/AED training, and as a result, was recognized as the first non clinical organization to accomplish this task. LRH is a leader in the area by reaching the 1 million pound mark in 2014 for recycling. Our customer satisfaction scores in 2014 consistently improved. Our focus to employee engagement with patients and hospital rounding were two major process improvements.
Community Garden - Littleton Regional Healthcare wants to be a community leader in encouraging individuals and families to eat healthy. Each year, Facilities prepares an 18 plot community garden on hospital property for interested employees and community members to plant and maintain a garden.
