HealthLeaders Media

With winter on the way and energy costs rising, some hospitals are choosing alternative heating fuels and systems to heat and power their facilities.

At Memorial Hospital in North Conway, NH, a 25-bed critical access hospital on the edge of the White Mountain National forest, leadership found the idea of moving to an alternative energy source especially compelling.

“In the Mount Washington Valley, it’s important to have the pollution reduction,” says Scott Gage, director of support services at Memorial Hospital. He first introduced the idea of switching to an alternative energy source to his hospital’s leadership.
