BILOXI — Keesler Medical Center has been awarded the Energy Star award by the Environmental Protection Agency.
In a message to 81st Medical Group commander Brig. Gen. (Dr.) Kory Cornum, Col. Rex Langston, chief of the health facilities division in the office of the surgeon general, said, “The receipt of an Energy Star serves as recognition that your facility, when compared against other medical facilities across the United States, has distinguished itself by exceptional efforts in energy conservation. To receive an Energy Star, your facility must earn a 75 out of a possible 100 points. Keesler Medical Center is therefore in the upper 25 percentile of all medical health-care facilities in the United States with a score of 77. Keesler Medical Center is one of only eight recipients across the Air Force Medical Service who have received the 2012 Energy Star.”
Cornum said, “I could not be happier to be leading our nation’s medical centers in the energy arena.”
