Uninterrupted patient care within a hospital is a major necessity. To protect against interruptions from power outages, Beverly Hospital has installed a second 1500 KW generator in October 2019. The $3 million investment was a necessity for the hospital because its current generator was running at maximum capacity. Thanks to modern technology, moving forward the generators will “talk” to each other ensuring that they each run at about 50% capacity. The generators can run the facility for 96 hours. In other words, in case of emergency, the hospital can remain functional for nearly a week without normal electricity.
This is yet another way the hospital is investing to improve its facility. Earlier this year it expanded its Emergency Care Center by adding 15 beds, a new ambulance bay, an isolation room, and a new nursing station. In 2018, the hospital converted all of its maternity rooms to private suites, ensuring that each mother and baby have the comfort and privacy of their own room.
