)-- Ned Jennings, principal at FreemanWhite (www.freemanwhite.com), an architectural, engineering, interior design and consulting services firm for healthcare organizations in the United States, has announced that the firm completed design of mechanical improvements for Roanoke-Chowan Hospital in Ahoskie, N.C.
The project entails replacing an aging chiller and pumps with a new, larger capacity, high efficiency machine that will provide additional cooling for the facility with reduced energy costs. Other improvements include replacing an aging air handling unit with a new, larger capacity unit to more reliably serve the hospital’s surgery suite, radiology department, and other support areas.
Roanoke-Chowan Hospital is a not-for-profit hospital providing a wide range of health services. As part of University Health Systems, the hospital offers its facilities to patients in Ahoskie and in other Hertford County locations.
“FreemanWhite is excited to have the opportunity to implement new technology that is energy efficient at Roanoke-Chowan Hospital,” said Jennings. “This design benefits the hospital and has the added bonus of being environmentally-conscious.”
