German term or phrase: Heizzentrale
Context:
In der Heizzentrale wird die Wärme für die verschiedensten Anwendungsbereiche erzeugt.
Talking about meeting a hospital's heat requirements.

Local time: 14:43
central heating system
Explanation:
Depending on how you phrase your sentence, you may be able to get away with "central heating" alone, wiht no additional noun.

If yu feel you must have a noun, "system" and "installation" are generic enough.

If the reference is to the actual, physical installation, "plant" is the most commonly used term for a big installation (big enough for a hospital). "Unit" may be taken by some readers to imply a smaller installation.
