    Customer challenge

    The Lindehof Health Centre in Hazerswoude-Dorp is a multi-discipline medical provider. It houses a general practice, pharmacy, physiotherapy practice, and a Young People and Family Centre. Philips was tasked with providing lighting that would help staff stay alert and focused.

    The right lighting


    The center owners care greatly about health. Not just the health of their patients, but that of the environment. For that reason, it was paramount for the center to be fitted with eco-friendly lighting that could also support wellbeing. However, cost was also a concern too. Philips Lighting Capital was able to help by providing a leasing arrangement for the initial investment.


    Once the project was given the green light, we set about installing energy-saving LED lighting. PowerBalance was used to bring visual comfort to work areas. It was chosen for its refreshing illumination, which is bright enough to do away with desk lamps, but does not cause any glare. Above patient beds, CoreView ceiling fixtures provide excellent visibility for medical staff.


    The lights are controlled by OccuSwitch DALI, which uses presence and daylight detection to adjust the light levels automatically, eliminating excess energy use.  “I’m really excited about the lighting,” says co-owner Jan van der Meij. “The light is pleasant and less tiring on the eyes because of its high lumen output.”


    Energy-efficient LED and smart lighting controls are making a huge difference. Compared with conventional lighting, the new system will save up to 50% in energy and associated costs. In addition, the lamps will not need to be changed for the next 20 years.
