At a time when there is increasing concern about rising healthcare costs, and the likelihood that the demand for healthcare services will continue to rise given the aging population, it is essential that hospitals and other healthcare institutions continue to look carefully at their energy bills and options for upgrading their infrastructure. Energy expenditures are an essential cost of doing business, but they also represent an opportunity to save money and improve the institution’s bottom line — which frees up valuable funds for patient care.
In this paper, we will examine the following:

- Purchasing strategies hospitals are employing to save money on their electricity, natural gas, and fuel oil supplies in the context of healthcare and energy industry trends
