NORWALK, CONN. — EMCOR Group Inc. announced that it has been awarded contracts for a number of major healthcare projects across the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. The total value of the projects exceeds $150 million.
“The healthcare sector continues to expand and, as it does, technology and facility upgrades are becoming increasingly necessary,” said Frank MacInnis, chairman and CEO of EMCOR Group. “EMCOR is uniquely qualified to manage the challenges presented by the integration and management of new technology and innovative internal systems and to do so in a way that fits within the financial and long-term strategy of an institution.”
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the need for long-term care services for the elderly will more than double during the next 30 years, with aging alone resulting in a 7% increase in hospital days per thousand over the next 10 years.
Over the past five years, EMCOR has completed more than 300 healthcare related projects across both the public and private sectors.
Examples of EMCOR’s new projects in the healthcare sector include:
