Advancements in medical technology have created better conditions and results for patients, physicians as well the environment. Celitron Medical Technologies is a well-known name in this field due to their focus on developing and producing medical sterilization equipment. Recently members of the organization traveled to Cambao, Beltran, and San Juan de Rioseco with Dr. German Gurrero, Health Secretary of Cundinamarca. This area has utilized investments from local governments to help improve various medical facilities. Through the use of green technologies and medical waste treatment units, hospitals in the area have become much safer and have lowered their overall costs. These effective changes have created a positive outcome for the facility’s occupants as well as the surrounding community.


The Collective Impact of Multiple Upgrades

Cambao’s Health Centre has recently implemented solar panels, which can supply nearly all of the facility’s requirements, thanks in large part to the favorable weather conditions of the area. Management has spoken about the additional benefits the facility will receive from such a move. Not only is it environmentally-friendly, but it can help medical centers become more self-sustaining. Infrastructure has been improved at many facilities including San Juan’s hospital and the Health Center in Cambao, Beltran, Bituima, and Diani. New floors, ceilings, and roofs have helped to create a cleaner and more pleasant environment. Celitron’s medical hazardous waste solution, the Integrated Sterilizer & Shredder (ISS) was also introduced for infection control and hospital waste disposal. Unlike other medical waste sterilizers, this device features an integrated shredder. This allows medical waste to be disposed of in a safe and efficient manner.

Reducing Costs and Deriving Additional Benefits

Many medical facilities struggle to deal with the financial burdens of the industry while also maintaining a hospitable and efficient location for patients and staff members alike. But through the use of green technologies, many organizations in the area have effectively cut costs. A project was also done managing LED energy and photo cells to reduce energy costs by a significant degree. This type of financial restructuring combined with the smart management of bio-medical waste has helped the Magdalena center region in Cundinamarca become a public health example for the surrounding areas. The financial stability of the organization is beneficial to both patients and staff members, allowing the facility to focus more attention and resources on patient care.

Green Facilities Provide Eco-Friendly Solutions

There has always been concern about the impact that medical facilities have on the environment. Medical waste is dangerous if not disposed of in the proper manner, and the amount of energy these facilities need in order to operate has always been a problem. But the implementation of green technology such as solar panels and waste management devices like the ISS has led to San Juan de Rioseco’s hospital receiving green qualifications on the global green hospitals network. Through funding from the local government and the implementation of advanced technologies, the Magdalena Center has been able to provide prompt and efficient care to many individuals. And while the facility focuses on helping patients achieve good health, it is also designed in such a way that it keeps the surrounding environment and community healthy as well.
