Whitfield Clinic partners with energy provider Dalkia
10 December 2013
Waterford’s Whitfield Clinic has embarked on a utilities management partnership with Dalkia, the expert energy and utilities management provider. With over 70 beds as well as four operating theatres and an endoscopy suite, uninterrupted quality facilities management in the clinic is essential.
This is part of a wider integrated facilities management approach at Whitfield Clinic, which also sees Zehnacker Ireland Healthcare assume responsibility for waste and cleaning, working alongside Dalkia and fully integrated into the Helpdesk Concept Planned Preventative Maintenance solution being managed by Dalkia for the hospital.
“In terms of risk management, safety and continuous quality improvement,” said Donal Farrell, CEO of Whitfield Clinic, “both companies bring a wealth of experience that will enable Whitfield Clinic to ensure that we’re meeting legislative and current best practice guidelines – all the while ensuring our patients receive the service they expect.”
“Both of these companies offer high value-added services to ensure that Whitfield Clinic’s facilities, waste and cleaning services can continue to be delivered in a safe, compliant and sustainable way,” added David Beirne, CFO.
Dalkia’s expertise in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, both on the island of Ireland and internationally, allows the organisation to bring award-winning best practice maintenance and asset management techniques directly to the benefit of Whitfield Clinic’s patients. Pat Gilroy, CEO of Dalkia Ireland and the UK, commented that applying the company’s internationally-accredited best practices in partnership would “ensure that Whitfield Clinic can surpass its commitment for high quality, patient-centred care”.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2013/12/10/whitfield-clinic-partners-with-energy-provider-dalkia/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/whitfield-1024x642.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/whitfield-300x300.jpgNews
