The article offers information on the discovery of using an energy saving biomass boiler that spared the money of Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, New York. It states that it is a renewable-energy technology with an infrastructure-upgrade program, which is designed to affect positively the environment and the bottom line of the hospital. It mentions that Arnot Ogden is preparing to build a tower for new patients in which the boiler mass will be effectively used.
