Walt Hospital Emergency Generator System

Table of Contents

Providing emergency backup power systems for the healthcare industry is one of the most important things we do at WALT Power. We know that having a 24/7 emergency backup power system in place at hospitals and healthcare facilities can mean the difference between life and death.

If something like a power outage occurs, vital power is still needed to keep life support machines and other necessary healthcare tools working to sustain human life.  This is where the importance of generators comes in.  When the power is out, a hospital almost always uses a backup generator to make sure that everything remains on and running.  The need for generators in the healthcare market is one of absolute importance.  Whether it is a storm or a general blackout, people need to be assured that the hospital will be able to sustain power and get it from an alternative source. Unlike regular generators that people use to maintain power in their homes, the generators used in the healthcare market are a different type.

Being prepared for the worst, it’s a must for the healthcare industry. Power outages can come in many forms, from weather-related events, natural disasters, a general blackout, or an equipment failure on the aging power grid.

A full tank of diesel fuel can maintain power for an entire hospital for about 8 hours.  Depending on the size of the hospital and the amount of fuel stored on-site, these types of generators can maintain power for at least 24 hours.  Hospitals must have generator backup because power outages are often unexpected and unpredictable.  The safety of those in immediate need of healthcare is certainly a priority, and fortunately, generators can ensure that those in hospice will be taken care of with little to no interruption.

When the power goes out at home temporarily, it can be quite an inconvenience.  When the power goes out area-wide for any length of time, it can be a major cause of several different serious problems and concerns.  Perhaps the most important of these is a loss of power to hospitals.  If hospitals cannot maintain power, seriously ill and injured peoples’ lives are at risk.  Monitors, oxygen pumps, and other valuable equipment can stop working.  Fortunately, most modern hospitals today have enlisted the help of backup power generators.  Another concern that comes with the loss of electricity is the loss of communications.  When the power goes out, most cordless phones are no longer working.  This can prohibit people from being able to call emergency services if they need them.  Another issue is data loss.  Millions of numbers and documents can be lost forever if servers go out, even temporarily.  This can become a major crisis not only in the healthcare industry but also in the banking, retail, and financial industries.

Our experience allows us to provide a backup power system to meet the ongoing demands of modern healthcare facilities.

For a facility as large as a hospital, your best bet to determine your generator needs is to hire a certified electrician. He or she will inspect your facility’s power needs and usage to provide accurate calculations.
