After achieving success in getting more hospitals involved in reducing their carbon footprint, Healthier Hospitals will remain a Practice Greenhealth Program.


Due to the momentum and success of the Initiative, Healthier Hospitals transitions into a free program of Practice Greenhealth as of May 2015, intended to continue guiding those who are just beginning their sustainability work. The program will continue to use data to implement proven environmental strategies, and will lead companies with that structure in place to more advanced Practice Greenhealth membership.

The six challenge areas and corresponding data sets have been reviewed, updated and refreshed and will be introduced in the coming months. We look forward to building on this success with you. For questions about Healthier Hospitals, please email Janet Howard.
