Campbellford Memorial Hospital

May 14, 2024 – Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its HVAC project, marking a significant milestone in its commitment to providing safe and high-quality care to the community. The completion of this project is the result of a collaborative effort between CMH and TRANE, the company entrusted with the task of upgrading the hospital's HVAC system.

The HVAC project, which received over $6 million in one-time capital funding from the Government of Ontario, has resulted in extensive upgrades to CMH's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning infrastructure. These improvements include the replacement of air handling units, enhancements to ductwork, installation of advanced air filtration and ventilation systems, and the implementation of an automated building control system.

"We are thrilled to celebrate the successful completion of our HVAC project, which represents a significant investment in the infrastructure of Campbellford Memorial Hospital," said Jeff Hohenkerk, CEO of CMH. "This project ensures that our hospital maintains optimal indoor air quality, which is crucial for the health and well-being of our patients, staff, and visitors."

The HVAC upgrades not only enhance the comfort and safety of the hospital environment but also contribute to environmental sustainability efforts. By reducing CMH's yearly natural gas consumption by 10,000 cubic meters and lowering greenhouse gas emissions by more than 19 tons annually, these improvements align with the hospital's commitment to environmental stewardship.

Representatives from TRANE expressed their satisfaction with the outcomes achieved. "We are proud to have partnered with Campbellford Memorial Hospital on this important project," said Luis Rodrigues, General

Manager, Comprehensive Energy and Infrastructure Solutions at TRANE. "The upgrades implemented will not only enhance the operational efficiency of the hospital but also contribute to creating a healthier and more comfortable environment for patients and staff."

The completion of the HVAC project represents a significant step forward for Campbellford Memorial Hospital towards ensuring the current building can effectively meet the needs of the community. “As CMH continues towards redevelopment as part of a Campus of Care,” noted CEO Hohenkerk, “we remain committed to investing in the infrastructure and technology our current facility requires in order to meet the evolving needs of our patients, staff and community.”
