Medcare Hospital embraces green! It recognizes that protecting the environment is a critical issue. It is a key responsibility of the business towards the community and most of all to mother earth.  The vital benefits of environmental protection for current and future generation are clear, but Medcare Hospital does not limit its awareness and does acknowledges that reducing unnecessary waste and minimizing the consumption of scarce resources is consistent with ongoing financial sustainability in terms of meeting the expectations of our customers, reducing costs and minimizing risks.

Medcare Hospital has devoted significant resources into this area and is currently working on several important environmental initiatives that will lead to better outcomes for all.

 

  1. Waste Management

Medcare Hospital produces variety of waste streams including general waste (e.g. paper, cardboard, plastics, cartridges: e-waste, glass and food) and (infectious waste) that requires special handling and disposal. The hospital has practiced wide sustainable green initiatives aimed at achieving improvements in waste management such as segregation and recycling.

 

  1. Water and Electricity saving Stretegies

DESCRIPTION

FEATURES

1

Hot water Calorifiers

The function of heating elements in the calorifiers is controlled through stepless thyristors which sequences all the heating elements operation as per the temperature and water flow demand and hence also optimizes the power consumption as per the exact demand.

2

Hot water recirculating pumps

The hot water distribution network has the hot water return pipes to calorifier, which ensures the required water temperature in the network and optimizes the power consumption of calorifiers.

3

Water Booster Pumps

The water booster pumps have VFD driven motors to optimize the power consumption of the pump to the exact required water pressure/flow only.

4

Water savers in the taps & mixtures

All water supply mistures & taps are provided with water savers which provides only the required water flow rate to the designated fixture/application

5

Sensor operated mixtures

For public toilets wash basins, the sensor operated mixtures are provided to control the water flow.

DESCRIPTION

FEATURES

1

Energy Saving Lamps

All the light fixtures are provided with energy saving lamps, hence the total power consumption shall be less compare to the conventional lights. Few areas LED spot lights are also provided for better energy saving.

2

Lighting Control System

The operation of Light fittings in the common areas, fire exit staircases are programmed through lighting control system with the over ride provisions, which will reduce the power consumption considerably as the operation of lights are automatically controlled as per the requirements programmed.

3

Power factor correction panel for complete electrical load

The power factor correction panels are provided to improve the power factor up to 0.99, which reduces the KVA demand from the SEWA.

4

Energy Savers for Electrical Main Distribution Panel

Energy savers are connected to Main Distribution panel to reduce the active power loss, which reduces the heating of switch gears cables, thus the power saving is achieved.

5

LED televisions

The television sets used in the complete building are LED type to reduce the power consumption compare to the conventional TVs.
