We’ve engineered our generators for hospitals and the health care industry to operate at peak efficiency and meet European Union (EU) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emission standards.

It is essential for your hospital to have a backup generator you can trust when the power goes out.

Hospital Emergency Generators That Meet Critical Demands

Hospital emergency generators must power a large number of vital machinery. From life support equipment and intravenous dispensing systems to refrigerators that hold lifesaving medication, hospitals need a significant amount of power to keep moving in case of an emergency. Generators for health care industry applications must provide that power with consistent reliability. At Thompson Power Systems, we offer a wide range of generators that can help you meet your needs.

Our inventory of hospital emergency generators include:

  • Diesel generator sets. A hospital diesel generator is one of the most powerful options you can select for particularly large operations. These generators can reach up to 14,040 ekW to support vast numbers of equipment. They’re built to meet world-class standards and also offer high efficiency and low fuel consumption.
  • Gas generators. Gas generators are also available, which can support up to 9,700 ekW per unit. They offer more versatility through accomodating different fuels, such as natural gas, biogas, propane, coal gas, and alternative fuels. When some fuel sources are more readily available or cheaper, you can use the best option for your facility.
  • Microgrid. Microgrids and renewable energy systems allow you to harness sunlight for cost-effective and eco-friendly power systems. We have photovoltaic modules, controllers, storage inverters, and other equipment to create a robust power generation and storage system for health care facilities.
  • Mobile generator sets. With mobile generators, you can move your power system where it’s needed most, whether that’s halfway across town at another building or just across the hospital campus. Support off-site work, too, such as mobile events.

To support these generators and divert power where it’s needed, we also offer control systems, such as switchgear and paralleling controlsATS and ATC breaker/contactors, and ATS MX contactors.

At Thompson Power Systems, we offer new equipment sales as well as used equipment and rentals. Buying used is a great way to save some money on a purchase, especially when buying from a trusted, long-lasting manufacturer such as Caterpillar®.

Reliable Power for Essential Life Support

Powering a hospital’s most critical equipment isn’t something you can trust to subpar solutions. Many health care facilities know the value of working with a dependable dealer that offers quality products. Without it, lives could be at risk.

Edward Hospital & Health Services is a full-service regional health care provider that offers a wide variety of medical specialties and programming from 28 locations in 10 communities. The main campus supports 4,700 employees, including 1,200 nurses and a medical staff of over 1,000 physicians.

“We’ve seen many disasters strike hospitals throughout the U.S. It’s very important to have backup power and services available because when the power goes off for whatever reason, patients still need to receive their care,” said Patti Ludwig-Beymer, vice president and chief nursing officer at Edward Hospital. “Patients will die if we don’t have the backup power available to them.”
