B. Braun Will Sponsor Practice Greenhealth DEHP-Free Award

Reston, Virginia (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

Practice Greenhealth, the nation’s leading membership association devoted to environmentally responsible health care, has announced that B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun) will sponsor the DEHP-Free Award, one of the Practice Greenhealth Environmental Excellence Awards. These coveted Awards are given to institutions within the health care sector for outstanding programs to reduce their facility’s environmental footprint.

“As the first medical device company to manufacture PVC-free IV bags decades ago, B.Braun is a long-time pioneer in this field,” said Laura Wenger, RN, Practice Greenhealth Executive Director. “It’s a natural alignment to partner with them on this important award for the 2014 Awards Season.”

The DEHP-Free Award is given to the one hospital facility or system that demonstrates the most progress towards eliminating DEHP-containing and PVC-containing medical and building products.

Practice Greenhealth honors its top performers at the Environmental Excellence Awards Gala Dinner ceremony during CleanMed, the premier global conference on environmentally sustainable health care.

A full list of Practice Greenhealth Award Winners from 2013 is listed on the Practice Greenhealth website.
