EcoSurg™ Joins National Health Organization Supporting Environmental Practices

 

(Memphis, TN)  Randall Surgical Corporation - EcoSurg™ is pleased to announce that it has made a significant commitment to environmental sustainability by joining Practice Greenhealth, a membership organization for institutions and businesses in the health care field who are engaged in reducing their environmental footprints.

Practice Greenhealth provides practical guidance, training, consultation, and business solutions to help its members in their efforts to implement environmentally responsible practices. More than 1000 healthcare providers have joined Practice GreenHealth since 2008, indicating the growing commitment among the healthcare community to reduce its environmental impact.

Disposable patient positioners are used in over 20 Million surgical procedures per year in the United States alone. These foam shapes are used to properly position patients in a variety of positions, ensuring safety, comfort, and adequate access to the surgical site. When disposed of, however, these products are harmful to the environment as they are made from materials that consist largely of petroleum-based derivatives. These compounds and the other hazardous byproducts from their production and disposal are not only harmful to the environment, but also incur higher handling and disposal costs that are inevitably passed on to the Customer.

The Company’s proprietary, patent pending line of EcoSurg™ Patient Positioners are manufactured in the United States using an alternative foam type material that is largely comprised of renewable composites. The production of this environmentally friendly material results in a significantly smaller carbon footprint than the current standard of care.

 “We are very pleased to welcome EcoSurg™ to the Practice Greenhealth member community,” stated Laura Wenger, executive director of Practice Greenhealth.  “Their membership demonstrates a real commitment to improving the environmental impact on their patients, staff and communities.”

Practice Greenhealth offers a variety of programs to its members, including environmental purchasing, sustainable operations, continuing education, webinars, networking opportunities, communications, and annual awards recognizing the achievements of member institutions.


EcoSurg™ (pronounced eek-oh-surj) is a developer of environmentally-friendly surgical supplies that is dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint of the surgical suite.  The Company’s flagship product is the EcoSurg™ line of Patient Positioners.
