Understanding the Hospital & Healthcare Industry’s Fuel Needs
The healthcare industry in the United States accounts for 10.3% of total energy consumption in the commercial sector. Medical laboratories, surgical facilities, emergency rooms, inpatient and outpatient centers, doctors’ offices, hospitals, and healthcare facilities occupy up to 5% of commercial buildings in the United States. Additionally, they are also responsible for about 10.3% of energy consumption in the commercial sector, using fuel for many of their daily applications, including lighting, equipment, water, and operating. However, the amount of fuel used is also heavily dependent on the size of the facility, number of patients, and size of the workforce involved in running the operations.
According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), large multi-specialist centers and hospitals constitute the majority of healthcare facilities, spanning up to 1958 million square meters across a total of 3040 buildings in the United States. Emergency rooms operate on a 24/7 basis, which means they yield significantly higher energy and fuel consumption amounts (64% of the energy usage in the entire sector) than other types of healthcare facilities. On average, this equates to around $16.29 million worth of expenditure. Now more than ever, hospitals need more commercial fuel solutions to keep their facilities running efficiently day and night.

The Importance of Commercial Fuel Solutions for Hospital & Healthcare Companies
Running a hospital requires more energy than retail shopping malls, educational centers, and office buildings. Not only do patients come in 24 hours a day (which means the buildings themselves must be operational 24/7), but the equipment and machines required to care for the patients require significant energy output that other industries simply cannot rival.
Keeping hospitals and healthcare facilities’ operations running smoothly and efficiently is not just a benefit; it is an absolute necessity. In addition to the everyday commercial fuel sources that hospitals and medical centers need, they must also have a sufficient supply of propane or diesel fuel for backup generators in emergent, life-dependent situations. Aero Energy understands the importance of reliability and dependability. That is why we make it our priority to deliver hospitals and healthcare facilities in PA and MD commercial fueling solutions they can count on.
