In celebration of Earth Day 2015, Assemblyman Scott T. Rumana, Legislative District 40, presented St. Joseph’s Wayne Medical Center (SJWMC) with a Certificate of Appreciation. SJWMC and Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) recently completed $4 million in energy efficiency improvements that will save the acute care community hospital more than $435,000 annually in utility costs and improve the comfort and convenience of patients, staff and visitors.
The work was completed through the PSE&G Hospital Efficiency Program, a $129 million effort by New Jersey’s oldest and largest gas and electric utility that is helping 33 hospitals to better manage their energy consumption.
The energy efficiency improvements at St. Joseph’s Wayne Medical Center included the installation of new burners for the heating boilers and new air conditioning chillers, as well as the installation of other energy efficient equipment including lighting and ventilation controls.
The upgraded equipment installed through the PSE&G Hospital Efficiency Program has a broad impact at the Wayne campus, from enhancing patient care environments to reducing our electric and gas consumption and controlling our overall environmental impact.
Greater efficiency and greener outcomes are important components of facilities infrastructure at St. Joseph’s Wayne Medical Center. The PSE&G Hospital Efficiency Program positively impacted these areas.
