Congratulations to our Clients for their Practice Greenhealth Honors
As 2019 comes to a close, we would like to take the opportunity to congratulate the many hospitals who received awards at this year’s Practice Greenhealth Awards ceremony. The annual event takes place at the CleanMed Conference in May. Many of our clients who are members of the Catholic Health Association received an award for their work in environmentally sustainable practices.
Congratulations to Our Clients
This year, nearly 3 dozen Catholic Health Association members received honors from Practice Greenhealth. These awards are given in recognition of a hospital’s work in improving their environmental footprint.
Congratulations to both the California Hospital Medical Center (Dignity Health) and Providence St. Patrick Hospital (Providence St. Joseph Health) for receiving the Greenhealth Emerald Award. According to Practice Greenhealth, “this award recognizes health care facilities that are setting the standard in eliminating mercury, reducing and recycling waste, and using sustainable sourcing. Hospitals that win this award have demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability and have shown leadership in the local community and health care sector.”
Additionally, several of our clients received the Partner for Change award. This is given to hospitals that are changing their practices to become more sustainable, and have achieved measurable progress in a variety of sustainability-related areas. Congratulations to our many clients who received this award at this year’s CleanMed event in Nashville:
- Ascension – St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital (Indianapolis, IN)
