Success in reducing water consumption by 1,000,000 liters.
Challanges of energy spend:
Earlier this year, ResourceKraft which specialises in energy management and cost control solutions, approached the Milford Care Centre to charitably donate their core software product called Advisor.
Before ResourceKraft installed is monitoring system, Milford Hospice was having a lot of problems with on-site leaks and was keen on reducing water consumption. The County Council water bills came every 4 months and leaks went unnoticed for months until a huge bill arrived.
About Milford Hospice:
Milford Care Centre, based in Limerick, is a healthcare facility providing services to patients and residents in the areas of specialist palliative care and older people. Milford House Nursing Home was established by the Little Company of Mary in 1928 and the first Hospice beds opened in 1977. The overall infrastructure of the Centre has changed over the years but their commitment remained the same. The current hospice unit was built in 1999 and the Centre has a total number of 350 employees.
There are 47 beds in the Nursing Home and 30 in the Specialist Inpatient Unit (Hospice). There were 544 admissions to the Hospice during 2013. In addition there are two Day Care Centres with approximately 40 daily attendees, offices for our community based Hospice at Home team and an active Education Department on the campus.
“We were having a lot of problems with on-site leaks”
“We are very pleased to be working and helping the Milford Care Centre. The Hospice can know at any time, how much they have exactly used and the cost associated with that usage. This is a powerful reporting tool for any accounts department across any industry.”
