Change is hard. But hospitals and health systems don’t need to take on the challenges of sustainability alone.
After nearly 25 years of listening, working with, and developing tools for facilities of all sizes across the United States, we’re perfectly equipped to help strengthen and build internal capacity and leadership skills to help you succeed.
In addition to the resources and peer-to-peer connections you can find through the Practice Greenhealth network, we can also bring our experience and knowledge directly to your team when and where you need it.
