Providence hospital dives into California’s water conservation efforts
Modern Healthcare

Providence St. Joseph Medical Center is joining the list of California hospitals taking steps to minimize water usage during one of the most severe droughts The Golden State has faced. The Burbank hospital is expected to save about 15 million gallons of water each year by using reclaimed water to run its air-conditioning system. The hospital has been using reclaimed sewage water for about 90% of irrigation of its grounds for the past three years, but a new water line will allow the hospital to use reclaimed water for all of its irrigation systems and the 41,000 gallons it uses every day to power its cooling tower.
