GLRPPR Sector Resource: America's Top 10 Green Hospitals
America's Top 10 Green Hospitals
With 24/7 operations and powerful medical equipment, hospitals are one of the greatest consumers of energy - and one of the greatest generators of waste. Increasingly hospitals are finding that they can improve the care they give to patients and protect the natural environment by making greener choices in building materials, food, cleaners, lighting and landscaping. The Green Guide has released its first-ever exclusive report on 10 hospitals, from New York, NY, to Boulder, CO, that have set a green standard with innovative operational programs and new buildings. Three hospitals in the Great Lakes states made the top 10 list, and four hospitals in Great Lakes states received honorable mentions.
