OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital Earns ENERGY STAR Certification; Outperforms Similar U.S. Buildings on Measure of Energy Efficiency

OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy performance. This recognition is earned by significant energy savings and reflects OhioHealth’s dedication towards reducing its environmental footprint.

ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the United States that is based on actual, verified energy performance. Hospitals that receive this certification are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics.

“We’re honored to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation,” said Mansfield Hospital President Curt Gingrich MD. “Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.”

Dr. Gingrich credits this level of success to Mansfield Hospital’s facilities team for going above and beyond, and to its construction team for considering operational efficiency as part of their construction efforts.

Mansfield Hospital’s sustainability initiative goes beyond its building. It has also installed new electric vehicle charging stations that support efforts to reduce tailpipe emissions and encourage associates and visitors to go all-electric. All of this work aligns with OhioHealth’s Climate Pledge to reduce emissions by 50 percent by 2030, a stepping stone to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.

Mansfield Hospital is OhioHealth’s second hospital to achieve ENERGY STAR certification. For more information about ENERGY STAR for Buildings and Plants, click here.
