St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (SJHH), a teaching hospital affiliated with McMaster University, is known as a regional “center of excellence” for a variety of surgical specialties. With a 120-year history of caring for the communities surrounding Hamilton, SJHH recently expanded its specialties with a new three-story Surgical/Perioperative Tower.
The engineering specifications for SJHH’s power system were very precise because of the criticality of the hospital application. The system needs to supply a steady, dependable level of power even as the load on the system changes.
