Henry Ford Health System

Project Summary

Henry Ford Hospital, Henry Ford Health System's flagship location in downtown Detroit, sits on a 34 acre campus. Numerous buildings and over 3 million annual patient contacts mean parking is an important part of daily operations.

"It was just time." said Lawrence Jaskowski, Plant Operations Leader. "We had extended the life of our old fixtures in the underground structure as long as we could. Maintenance costs got to the point where this project was a priority."

70 watt Lumerica LED Garage Fixtures replaced 254 Qty. 175W Metal Halide Fixtures in the main hospital's underground structure. In doing so, Henry Ford Hospital will be saving almost $30,000 in electricity annually, and even more in maintenance costs.

Lumerica's LED Light Fixtures are also completely modular and can be serviced to last additional life cycles. No need to replace the entire fixture, just replace the necessary part at the end of life cycle.

"It was obvious that this was the best solution for us. And Lumerica is local, making scheduling delivery and installation easy."
