Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health Awarded 2014 Power Smart Excellence Awards for Leadership Excellence

Back to Our Stories


We’re proud to announce that both VCH and Fraser Health won a 2014 BC Hydro Power Smart Excellence Award for Leadership Excellence!

BC Hydro Power Smart Excellence Awards

The BC Hydro Power Smart Excellence Awards recognize businesses and organizations that are committed to the smart use of energy. Through the Lower Mainland Consolidation team, we’re dedicated to improving energy efficiency through a well-balanced energy management program; energy-efficient technology upgrades; and behavioural initiatives, such as sustainable transportation, recycling in acute-care sites, and many others across the region. For 2014, we’ve even exceeded our energy savings targets, giving us the ability to apply these savings to direct patient care and supporting a healthy and sustainable organization.

Leadership excellence

Working to receive a Leadership Excellence award is certainly not a small task — and is one of the highest levels of achievement in the Power Smart Excellence Awards. Power Smart Leaders, like VCH and Fraser Health, have proven their dedication to sustainable energy use by showing they’ve maintained or improved their consumption every year, while balancing the complexities of serving a large-scale organization.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has committed to keeping our health-care organizations sustainable, and congratulations to all the other award recipients on their achievements in the BC Hydro Power Smart Excellence Awards.
