  PODCAST 4: "Simple Steps, Big Payoffs in Healthcare Lighting"



Duration   Part A: 12 minutes
Part B: 12 minutes
Discussion Points  

Lighting consumes 41% of a typical hospital’s electrical use. Uncover where hidden costs are buried and how to best apply new technology such as LEDs. Learn the standards and economic rules of thumb used by some of the leading healthcare providers in North America.

Who's Speaking


Two Speakers with 65 Years of Lighting Experience

● Chuck Silverman, Principal, Silverman & Light

● Pat Becker, Specifications Manager, Philips

    Hospitals keep a hodge-podge of lamps on hand. It’s not uncommon for a hospital to have more than 125 different types of lamps! Does it need to be that complicated in lean times? No, say Silverman and Becker. Learn how healthcare providers such as Kaiser Permanente and others have cut the number of SKUs in inventory by two-thirds resulting in higher efficiency and lower costs.

In what spaces do the darling new technologies such as LEDs give you a return on investment that CFOs will bless? What precautionary steps are most effective to avoid being trapped by misleading data? Is quality of light diminished by installing the new generation of lamps? What types of hospitals are most likely over lit? Is it reasonable to expect a 200% return on your investment – that’s a simple pay-back of less than five months! What’s a simple trick to extend the life of a lamp?

All these questions and more are answered. This podcast is for anyone strapped for cash, or wants to get more out of the money they have.
