Healthcare Facilities & Engineering Week

In every facility there is a group who works seamlessly behind the scenes on a daily basis in order to ensure the facility as a building continues to function soundly.  At Fairfield Memorial Hospital the Plant Operations team, led under Director Jeff Wise are extremely important members of the healthcare team by keeping the facility operational, safe, and efficient. Because of all they do, there is power; running water; and a clean, comfortable, and safe healing environment for all who walk through the hospital doors. What patients, visitors, and staff may think is ordinary is truly extraordinary. Without this crew and their efforts, the doors of the hospital and the clinics would not be open.  
At FMH, the Plant Operations crew handles an average of 150-200 service calls per month, on top of the preventive maintenance work performed each month. They do everything from making sure the HVAC systems are working properly to running fire drills, performing weekly generator runs, smoke alarm checks, emergency lighting checks, ice machine maintenance, to maintenance in the boiler room to ensure hot water and steam are available. During the winter snow months, the Plant Operations crew does their best to stay ahead of the weather to ensure safe parking lots and sidewalks into the facility remain safe, along with taking care of any snow removal during the most testing snow and ice storms. Other duties they assist with include, but are not limited to setting up for large events and fundraisers. 
“Quality work is important to ensure a quality healthcare environment is maintained at all times according to the life-safety standards set by The Joint Commission. Our facility always performs very well in this area, and I would like to thank all members of the Plant Operations staff on behalf of the staff, visitors, and community for all they do for us,” stated Katherine Bunting-Williams, Ph.D., FMH Chief Executive Officer.
