The Indiana Society of Professional Engineers (ISPE) presented Evansville-based Hafer Associates with the 2014 Outstanding Engineering Achievement award in recognition of the recent emergency power expansion project at Deaconess Hospital.
To appropriately serve patients, Deaconess must have reliable power and emergency power.
