HealthTrust, which supports more than 1,600 hospitals and health systems, will soon be able to offer Energy-as-a-Service solutions to member hospitals and health systems nationwide under a new agreement signed Feb. 18 with Bernhard and ProStar Energy Solutions to increase efficiency options.
Through this program, HealthTrust members will be able to choose between services like engineering design, construction, operations and maintenance, and financing to reduce energy consumption. Bernhard estimates a total savings of $50 million in operating expenses every year for member healthcare facilities.

ProStar has completed over 30,000 projects such as this to increase energy optimization and sustainability.
In addition to the 1,600 hospitals and health systems in the HealthTrust network, other members include more than 43,000 sites including ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices, long-term care and alternate care sites.
