TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 31, 2019 /3BL Media/ – The Pediatric Therapy Network (PTN) in Southern California is going green with a new suite of energy efficient appliances from ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year LG Electronics.

The new PTN Feeding Therapy Clinic in Torrance, Calif., is now home to advanced new LG ENERGY STAR certified appliances, including a counter-depth French-door refrigerator and Wi-Fi-enabled QuadWash dishwasher. Completing the package are LG’s True Convection electric range and over-the-range microwave oven, all installed with the assistance of local dealer WDC Kitchen & Bath.

Therapists will be using these appliances to prepare food for children with feeding and eating challenges. Feeding difficulties affect 25-45 percent of typically developing children and estimated 50-90 percent of children with developmental disabilities.  The PTN Feeding Therapy Clinic is the only such outpatient clinic in the Los Angeles South Bay area.  

PTN’s 200-plus dedicated staff members “work hard for families and can positively change the trajectory of their lives,” said PTN Board Member Mark Weinfeld. “Our main mission is serving the families that count on PTN, supported by these wonderful new ENERGY STAR LG appliances that also give us comfort in knowing that we’re helping to save the planet while reducing costs for PTN by being more energy efficient,” he said.

To be sure, PTN’s ENERGY STAR upgrades not only will make life easier for the children and staff at the clinic, they also save the PTN money overtime. On average, a facility like the PTN Feeding Therapy Clinic equipped with new ENERGY STAR certified appliances will save more than $700 over the products’ lifetime, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
