Generators for Hospitals and the Healthcare Industry

Healthcare

Designed to be trusted.

Your facility powers equipment that sustains lives. Install a standby power generation system that delivers backup power you can count on. Cat® generators are ensuring critical life support power to some of the world’s largest hospitals, supported by Cat uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, automatic transfer switches (ATS), and switchgear.

We’ve engineered our generators for hospitals and the healthcare Industry to operate at peak efficiency and to meet  EU and U.S. EPA emission standards.

It is essential for your hospital to have a backup generator you can trust when the power goes out. With our knowledge and experience we will configure a power system to match the ongoing demands of your healthcare facility and provide additional temporary power in emergencies. And our global product experts are available for installation and on-going maintenance — giving you confidence in the patient care you offer.

 

Reliable Power For Essential Life Support

Edward Hospital & Health Services is a full-service regional healthcare provider that offers a wide variety of medical specialties and programming from 28 locations in 10 communities throughout the western suburbs of Chicago. Located in Naperville, Ill., the main campus supports 4,700 employees, including 1,200 nurses and a medical staff of over 1,000 physicians. 

“We’ve seen many disasters strike hospitals throughout the U.S. It’s very important to have backup power and services available because when the power goes off for whatever reason, patients still need to receive their care,” said Patti Ludwig-Beymer, vice president and chief nursing officer at Edward Hospital. “Patients will die if we don’t have the backup power available to them."
