Project Profile: Choctaw General Hospital

Choctaw General Hospital (Choctaw) is the first and only critical access hospital in Choctaw County, Alabama. Meridian, Mississippi-based Rush Health Systems (Rush) first broke ground on the new 74,000-square-foot facility in 2012. The project team decided it could renovate an existing building for the administration portion of the new hospital but the patient care section required a new 44,000-square-foot addition and an HVAC system that could meet the specific needs of the health care environment.

Rush’s Vice President, Chief Resource Officer and Facility Manager Fred Rogers previously installed our Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning systems in Rush’s flagship hospital and saw $36,000 in savings the first year. After witnessing the benefits of our technology firsthand, Rogers began specifying our technology for all of the critical access hospitals they build: Choctaw being the fifth.

Patient care is the top priority at Choctaw and our VRF zoning systems deliver. The individual zoning and simultaneous cooling and heating capabilities provide each patient with the most precise and comfortable environment possible.
