Hospital Corporation of America, HCA, is the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services, composed of locally managed facilities that include 163 hospitals and 105 freestanding surgery centers in 20 states and England.
Given the number of HCA campuses around the country, design, construction and retrofit are constantly underway. Often managing 50 or more projects at a time, with an annual budget of $400 million, executives at HCA contracted Wilmot Inc. to evaluate project workflow and sustainability practices.
Wilmot is currently working with HCA to increase building efficiency and reduce waste during construction and renovation. Through researching recycling and material reuse opportunities related to HCA building projects, Wilmot is developing sustainable guidelines for HCA and its subcontractors. As part of HCA’s drive for quality, Wilmot Inc. has been entrusted with taking recycling on HCA projects from 0% to a goal of 95%.
Wilmot is analyzing resource conservation, material reuse technology, and other methods to save resources, money and time so that HCA can continue to build state-of-the-art projects from coast to coast. HCA’s executives have a firm commitment to implement sustainable practices and once guidelines are implemented throughout the United States, HCA expects a big impact on resource use.
