Hospital-grade electric cords must meet strict requirements for safety, durability and reliability in order to meet the high-stakes needs of healthcare settings. As such, hospital-grade power cables must be manufactured with the highest quality materials and the most advanced engineering available. 

In hospitals and other healthcare facilities, having the right power cables can be a matter of life and death. Hospital staff and patients depend on hospital-grade power cords to keep equipment (including critical life-support) running properly under the most extreme circumstances. For this reason, hospital-grade power cables, sometimes referred to as medical-grade extension cords, must always meet the highest safety and performance standards. They are vital for powering the life-sustaining equipment in these critical healthcare settings through busy late-night shifts and raging hurricanes. The high-quality hospital cables we stock at are dependable enough for use in surgical centers and even emergency rooms, but that doesn't mean they need to break the bank. Our expertly-manufactured hospital-grade power cables are available for some of the most competitive prices on the market without sacrificing quality.

What are Hospital Grade Power Cables?

Hospital-grade power cords are not your typical power cables. These extension cables are specialized to work at their best when lives are on the line, used in applications that demand a strong, reliable performance and long-lasting durability. This means that these specialized cords must be manufactured specifically for hospitals using the highest quality materials available. 

One term you might encounter when browsing hospital grade power cables and extension cords is "green dot" cables, used in reference to the green dot found on 5-15 plug connectors. It's essential that these cables are purchased from reliable retailers with a reputation for consistent quality, which makes a great place to start.

Our Hospital-Grade Cables

All of our hospital-grade electrical cords are rated up to 125 volts and stocked in many standard configurations with custom constructions available upon request. You can also place your custom order online using our custom cable builder. Simply select the “NEMA 5-15 Plug Hospital Grade” as your first choice when you begin. In addition to 5-15P-to-C13 and C-15P-to5-15R medical extension cords, we also carry Y-power splitters and hospital-grade multi-outlet power strips.'s selection of Hospital-Grade Power Cords includes the aforementioned "green dot" 5-15P-to-C13 power cables that meet both NEMA and IEC standards, rated up to 10, 13 or 15 amps. These specialized power cables are UL Listed and tested to meet UL 817 & CAN/CAS C22 standards.

Depending on your healthcare institution's cables setup, you might want to consider investing in a right-angled version of these cables to avoid excessive cord wear-and-tear from constant bending in some circumstances and plug configurations. The angled C13 connector is ideal in tight spaces, such as behind equipment in a medical cart or when the machine is against a wall, allowing for proper bend of the cable. 

Our 5-15p to 5-15r hospital extension cords are constructed with a sturdy 16 awg jacket in a bright orange color for easy visibility. These cables feature a NEMA 5-15 plug on one end and a NEMA 5-15 receptacle on the other. You can purchase these cords from our online catalog in lengths of 8 feet, 50 feet, and 75 feet.
