EV Charging Solutions for Healthcare Facilities
Whether they serve a large metropolis or small town, healthcare facilities are epicenters of wellness and healthy practices in communities everywhere. From hospitals and clinics to physical therapy and dentist offices, these organizations are recognized as leaders committed to the public well-being of their communities. In addition to the compassionate and potentially life-saving care they already provide patients, medical centers have an exciting new way to supplement healthy practices with an increasingly valuable amenity in the form of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
Attract More Patients and Employees
As drivers across the country continue to prioritize clean energy and sustainability, the EV revolution is underway. EVAdoption reports that by 2030, approximately 50 percent of all new car sales are expected to be electric vehicles, and EV charging stations provide an opportunity for healthcare facilities to capitalize on the accelerated demand. There are a number of factors that go into a patient deciding where to receive healthcare, and amenities can be a key selling point with all other things being equal. Medical centers that offer EV charging stations will have a leg up on their competitors among the growing population of EV drivers.
Investing in the next generation of infrastructure with EV charging stations can also prove to be valuable in recruiting efforts for healthcare facilities of all types. More than 20 percent of EV drivers charge their vehicle at work, and hosting reliable charging stations could mean the difference between hiring or missing out on a talented individual, particularly if the candidate is already an EV driver. Doctors and other medical professionals are often on the cutting edge of new technology, meaning parking lots everywhere could soon be filled with electric vehicles. Deploying EV charging stations allows medical centers to demonstrate their commitment to advanced vehicle technologies for the patients, employees, and visitors that use them.
Contribute to Overall Community Health
Healthcare facilities play a vital role in our communities not only by delivering care for the sick or injured but also by providing a vision for healthier living that everyone can follow. In addition to the incredible work they do on a daily basis, speaking engagements, educational literature, and outreach events are just some of the ways that these organizations share healthy tips and practices to improve the communities they serve. Providing EV charging stations represents a new opportunity to showcase a commitment to health, well-being, and green initiatives.
A key factor in the growing demand for electric vehicles is a shifting focus toward a more sustainable future with clean energy options. As this vision continues to grow into a mission for companies and individuals everywhere, medical centers can show support for the cause by installing EV charging stations in their parking lots and garages. Coupled with existing environmental and sustainability efforts, EV charging stations demonstrate leadership in adopting advanced technologies and encourage others to consider environmentally-conscious programs.

Challenges Facing Healthcare Organizations and How PaperCut Can Help
A healthcare facility is a community of many people – from patients and caregivers to administrators and IT staff. This can make it challenging to create one-size-fits-all policies for secure, streamlined printing that meets everyone’s needs. Thankfully, with PaperCut software, you can make this challenge a little easier by creating flexible workflows that address your unique printing needs.
Hospitals’ top three concerns include security, document capture/workflow, and printer driver deployment. The great news is that PaperCut can help with all three of these!
Printing costs continue to be a problem for most healthcare organizations. However, the problem is not just the cost associated with print materials; it’s also the security of confidential patient data that needs to be protected. This can become an even more significant concern when you consider how much printing takes place compared to other more modern ways of communicating information, such as through email or online portals.

In addition to securing their print environment, PaperCut MF enables hospitals to trim print costs, measure environmental impact, and track printing usage with greater visibility than ever before.
