Practice Greenhealth partners Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, and PeaceHealth have joined to create an exciting, new engagement initiative designed specifically for health care caregivers.  

What is the one healthcare ecochallenge?

From April 21-May 19, you and other members of your organization’s team will use the online platform on the ecochallenge site to select activities to do at work, at home, and in your community to help develop healthy and sustainable habits.

Choose from a wide range of daily and one-time actions crafted with health care employees in mind. As you complete actions each day, you’ll see the scores of your individual achievements along with your organization’s impacts add up in real-time.

Watch your team’s ranking as you compete for bragging rights against other health care organizations around the world. It’s a friendly “competition” where we all win as we work to be better environmental stewards.
