Date:4/25/2013

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.”

The Champion for Change Award is reserved for organizational partners supplying health care products and services that are considerate of the earth and its resources. The winners of this Award have achieved success in greening their own organization and have also assisted others who are committed to improving their environmental performance.

Among its 2012 accomplishments in the area of sustainability, Amerinet incorporated new Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Standardized questions into group purchasing agreements and electronic contract system, reduced solid waste by 25 percent and continued to serve as a leader with other industry stakeholders to advance sustainability practices among members.

The Practice Greenhealth Environmental Excellence Awards were presented in Boston, Mass., at the CleanMed Conference & Exposition, the premier national environmental conference for leaders in healthcare sustainability.

During the conference, Amerinet also participated in a panel discussion highlighting how group purchasing organizations have pioneered the way in helping to green the healthcare supply chain.
