Generators for Hospitals & the Healthcare Industry

 

Electrical Power Generating Systems for Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

Healthcare facilities know blackouts aren’t a luxury they can afford. When the well-being of your patients is at risk, you can’t take chances with your critical electrical loads. Yet today, there’s more to worry about than ever: seasonal power outages, and utility deregulation or privatization. And in a time where more hospitals, clinics and private physician practices are using electronic medical records to store and share sensitive patient information, a power loss or interruption could result in a devastating data breach.

At Quinn Power Systems, we understand the needs of healthcare providers and offer a range of generators for hospitals and clinics that ensure you have a reliable backup system in place at all times. Whether you’re looking for a standby commercial generator or a commercial facility generator, we’ll help you find a solution that meets strict U.S. EPA emission standards and helps you operate at peak efficiency.
