Building Operating Management magazine, the nation’s leading publication for commercial building owners and facility managers, has named Crouse Hospital as one of four honorees selected to receive this year’s FMXcellence Recognition Award. The annual award recognizes facilities management teams that add significant value to their organizations by helping to achieve broader goals.
Crouse is the only hospital to be named and will be honored at the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference, to be held in Baltimore in March. The hospital’s Engineering department was selected for its planning and implementation of upgrades to Crouse’s emergency power and chilled water systems, a $13 million project that took 23 months to complete.
This year’s honorees were judged by the editorial staff of Building Operating Management magazine. “FMXcellence gives facility managers the opportunity to receive recognition for using facilities to add value to their organizations,” said Edward Sullivan, the publication's editor. “We have two goals for FMXcellence: to publicly recognize successful facility management teams as strategic partners that benefit our nation’s buildings, campuses and institutions, and to spread the word about best practices so that facility managers can learn from their peers.”
According to Crouse Hospital Engineering Director Jeff Tetrault, CHFM, CHC, the FMXcellence recognition is reflective of his team’s commitment to helping the hospital meet its mission. “Our focus is to support the hospital in providing the best in patient care, which we do through our planning and work to ensure Crouse facilities are up-to-date and functioning at peak performance,” says Tetrault. “We have a great team, and it’s gratifying to see their work and efforts recognized on a national level.”
