St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Amerinet, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, today received the 2013 “Champion for Change” Award from Practice Greenhealth for their success in greening their day-to-day practices. Practice Greenhealth is the nation’s leading healthcare membership community that empowers its members to increase their efficiencies and environmental stewardship while improving patient safety and care.
The Champion for Change Award honors businesses that supply the healthcare sector who have not only taken steps to improve their organization’s green practices, they have gone the extra mile to help their clients and associates expand their sustainable practices as well.
“The Champion for Change Award honors organizations that demonstrate leadership in reducing their environmental footprint,” said Laura Wenger, RN, executive director of Practice Greenhealth. As a multiple-time awardee, Amerinet has exhibited their commitment to reach beyond their internal practices to their clients and community to make even more of an impact.”
As evidenced in a recent Health Care Research Collaborative study, “Can Sustainable Hospitals Help Bend the Health Care Cost Curve?”, introducing environmental sustainability measures in hospitals not only results in significant savings, it won’t increase operating costs. The implications are clear — given the return on investment, all hospitals should adopt and expand their sustainability programs.
“We have partnered with Practice Greenhealth for many years, seeking new ways to assist members in enhancing their sustainability practices,” said Todd Ebert, Amerinet president and CEO. “We remain committed as a leader in environmental responsiveness in the healthcare industry, working internally and externally to improve the environment while bringing savings and quality to members.”
