Low energy lighting upgrade for Singleton Hospital

Singleton Hospital has completed a major lighting upgrade project following an additional donation from the Bloomfield Group Foundation.

The recent $10,000 donation from the Foundation followed a $20,000 donation made earlier this year, and provided funding for a project to replace all existing lighting at the hospital.

The shift to low energy LED lighting will result in electricity cost savings of more than $200,000 over 10 years.

Wendy Mason-Jones, Health Service Manager and Director of Nursing at Singleton Hospital said:

“The Singleton Health Service LED light replacement project is an excellent example of corporate citizenship. The collaboration with The Bloomfield Group has expedited an essential part of the Singleton Health Services’ energy saving scheme to significantly improve lighting for clinical areas, reduce waste and costs.

This is an efficient, green, collaborative venture which offers long term advantages for our community health.”

Brendon Clements, Operations Manager at The Bloomfield Group owned Rix’s Creek Mine said:

“Hundreds of our employees from across our operations live in Singleton, and it’s tremendous to have the opportunity to support projects that directly benefit our local community.”

The Bloomfield Group Foundation was established in 2006 to support and benefit local people through funding Hunter Valley community based programs and projects.
