KENDALLVILLE – Parkview Noble Hospital has earned a distinction only four other hospitals have achieved.
It received an Energy Star award marking it as being in the top 25% of energy efficient buildings of its size and type in the country.
Parkview Noble improved its score from 45 in 2016 to 78 last year following upgrades. It partnered with Performance Services to upgrade temperature controls, heating ventilation and air conditioning and air handling units.
The upgrades provide precise control of temperature, humidity and air pressure in the operating rooms at the hospital.
Parkview Noble President Gary Adkins says the improvements resulted in around $80-thousand in energy savings last year.
