'50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America' Named by Becker's Healthcare
Becker's Hospital Review has named the following hospitals to its 2013 list, "50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America." These forward-thinking institutions lead sustainability efforts by example through mass-scale and local carbon-cutting efforts, and they also demonstrate how environmental sustainability is a shared responsibility. The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team used several resources to develop this list, including Health Care Without Harm, Practice Greenhealth, the Healthier Hospitals Initiative, the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program, the EPA and other healthcare sustainability organizations and experts.
