NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 14 Premier healthcare alliance, serving more than 2,200 hospitals and some 63,000 other healthcare sites, has entered into a contract with Energy Automation Systems, Inc. (EASI) to offer Premier members EASI technologies that can reduce energy consumption between 10 and 30 percent.
"Premier's mission is to improve the health of its members' communities, and health care providers have more resources to provide services when they are saving energy and money," said Joe Merlo, EASI founder and chief executive officer. "After analysis and research, Premier concluded that EASI gives alliance members a financial and environmental advantage; we're proud to be one of its approved vendors. Reducing energy costs will go a long way toward lowering the overall cost of health care."
Premier, created and owned by nearly 200 hospitals and health systems, is based in Charlotte, N.C. It offers members a variety of services under the headings of reducing costs, improving quality and managing risk. One function is "organizing member committees to evaluate products and select those to be placed on contract," according to the Premier website.
EASI President Dr. Paul Bleiweis said the company's technologies reduce heat and eliminate waste in electrical systems.
"Those two elements are always there, siphoning off power quality and causing larger than necessary electric bills," said Bleiweis, who earned his doctorate in nuclear science and engineering from UCLA. "Our technologies improve power quality while reducing kilowatt hours without major construction or interfering with a client's business operations."
EASI has a more than 32-year corporate history of providing clients with energy saving technologies. EASI has conducted thousands of technology installations in the U.S. and more than 60 other countries either directly or through a network of affiliates.
EASI is headquartered in Nashville, Tenn. Its website is www.energyautomation.com.
