Comprehensive solutions for reliable hospital operation

Changing demographics are challenging healthcare needs and responses.

According to the United Nations, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, growing at slower rate. One in six people in the world will be over age 65 (16%), and one in four persons living in Europe and Northern America could be aged 65 or over.1 This requires additional healthcare resources and service innovation to deliver the needed long-term care.
Hospitals and labs emit 4.4% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions through energy consumption, transport, and product manufacture, use, and disposal.

Our flexible and integrated solutions secure power to keep running 24/7, improve care quality, while optimizing facility performance. This ensures to meet capacity demand, system uptime, and deep visibility into the infrastructure to make automation easier.

Design stage

Health facilities and medical locations should be designed in order
to guarantee safety and protection for patients’ and medical staff’s
through service continuity and reliability.
Products and solutions need to be compliant with IEC 60364-7-710 standard which regulates electrical installations in medical environments such as hospitals, medical and dental practices, veterinary clinics and health care centers.

Safety guaranteed

Healthcare facilities often combine ordinary areas and medical locations, which have special stringent requirements for electrical installation, according to IEC 60364-7-710 standard, which regulates electrical installations in medical environments.
According to the use and risk level, the facility areas need to ensure safety of patients and medical staff, and prevent risk of electrical hazards.


Continuity of service

Power outages or blackouts in critical power applications such as hospitals, veterinary centers, beauty clinics, medical and dental premises can be life-threatening. ABB provides
solutions for reliable power
distribution and protection, and comprehensive load management system, to ensure the availability of power and reduce downtime, without causing damage to patients, medical staff or connected medical equipment.


Enhanced patients care

Automation of building functions such as heating, lighting and shading, brings several advantages,
not only to healthcare facility owners and managers for optimal centralized control.


Energy and Asset management

Healthcare facilities are increasingly exposed to budgetary burdens, standards compliance and efficiency mandates. Whether it’s a new or existing electrical system, by giving access to powerful data, ABB smart and scalable solutions for energy and asset management allow to optimize the facility performance by measuring and monitoring (sub-meter, branch-monitor, check on power quality), predicting actions and maintenance, and checking system effectiveness.
