‘No-Holds-Barred’ Electric Supply to German Hospitals and Hospitals for Patients
WASHINGTON — The United States is seeking to bring electricity into the German hospitals and hospitals where many of its elderly and disabled patients live.
The White House is sending the White House Emergency Medical Services team to Germany for the first time since the start of World War II to bring power into the hospitals and other medical facilities, including those of the country’s senior citizens.
The team will be in Germany next week to work with senior citizens and their families.
It is expected to deliver power to hospitals and clinics for about 3,000 patients.
The power to power the hospitals is a vital piece of infrastructure, said White House press secretary Caitlin Hayden.
“We’ve been talking about this for years,” Hayden said.
“And as we saw in the United Kingdom, the power to go back to the grid is an essential part of making sure that we’re going to be able to get the medicine we need when it needs to be.”
There is no timetable for the delivery of power.
Hayden said that the White Senate has scheduled the delegation’s arrival to coincide with the arrival of the first delegation of senior citizens in the U.S. to visit a nursing home.
Germany’s senior seniors and the elderly are the fastest growing demographic in Germany, where health care costs are more than double the U,S.
The aging population is expected increase the demand for electricity, but some experts say the country is too reliant on coal-fired power plants.
The U.K. government has set up a program called GreenPower to encourage the development of renewable energy, including wind and solar, in Germany.
It was approved in September and is expected have power in place for about 10 years.
The United Kingdom has a system that is a combination of coal- and gas-fired plants that generate electricity.
It has the largest number of seniors in Europe and has been trying to develop a system with more renewable energy to help the aging population.
The Germans are also working to develop their own renewable energy sources that they believe will help to reduce their reliance on coal power.
The GreenPower initiative is a step in the right direction, said Rolf Stahl, the president of the German Association of the Elderly.
“But there are still problems,” he said.
He said he was not sure that Germany could solve all of the problems.
“The United Kingdom is still very much the leader,” Stahl said.
