The 30,000 square foot Central Utility Plant (CUP) adjacent to the Sacred Heart replacement hospital provides complete mechanical and electrical support for the Acute Care Tower, Oregon Heart & Vascular Institute and RiverBend Medical Pavilion.

The CUP includes a 280 lineal foot underground utilidor for services feeding the adjacent buildings, boiler room with three boilers, chiller room, welding room for facilities, control room, normal and emergency switchgear rooms, medical air compressor room, generators and cooling tower yard.

The innovative and environmentally friendly cooling water treatment system is a chemical-free method that protects groundwater resources and the City’s sewer system by eliminating the need to use or store potentially harmful chemicals that are often used in processes to treat cooling water.  This system, one of only seven installations nationally, also conserves millions of gallons of water annually making it extremely efficient.
