KSHE Update
President's Message
What a winter we have experienced this year. I must say that I believe it has been one of the lengthiest and coldest in memory. Though we are currently receiving a healthy dose of spring rainfall, I will definitely take it over snow, ice and cold!

Along with this period of rough weather has been one of the Commonwealths worse flu seasons. Our residents have been fighting very harsh strains of the virus that have claimed more than 120 Kentucky lives this season. Though most of us manage staff that are not "clinical care givers", we still carry much responsibility to protect them and their families from this illness.
We're dedicated to providing you high quality healthcare linen solutions.

ASHE Update
American Society for Healthcare Engineering
The ASHE Sustainability Committee Task Force requests KSHE members to complete the ASHE Energy & Water Survey. The survey has been shortened and is now much easier to complete. The data derived from this survey is essential to validate the Energy Star Program.
Every week, ASHE publishes a new health care facility compliance tip. The Tips are shared in a randomized order – view and comment on the tips on my.ashe.org.
The Energy to Care Awards honor health care facilities that reduce energy consumption by 10 percent in a single year or by 15 percent over two years.

The Energy Champion Award is given out once a year to honor a single facility (acute care hospital or medical office building as defined by Energy Star) that has demonstrated outstanding leadership in energy efficiency.
