Plant Operations is responsible for the day to day operation, repair and maintenance of hospital buildings and grounds. Services provided include Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, Locksmith, Metalwork, Painting, Heating and Ventilation, Landscaping and Lawn care, Custodial and Preventive Maintenance. Safety is an important part of the duties of the Plant Operations staff. All biomedical equipment must be checked for safety before placing into service and must be set up for a series of scheduled inspections during its use. Compliance with safety procedures and education of the staff is assured by the Plant Operations Director. Regular inspections insure each department and all public areas meet pertinent safety regulations with AHCA, The Joint Commission, NFPA and OSHA. The Plant Operations department’s goal is to provide a safe, clean and comfortable environment for patients, employees, as well as visitors, and to protect our hospital’s investment in healthcare.
