Becker's Healthcare Names "50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America"

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

Becker's Hospital Review has named the following hospitals to its list, "50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America." These hospitals are among the greenest healthcare organizations in the country. They are forward-thinking institutions that 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.

Note: Only acute-care hospitals open on or before Jan. 1, 2013, were considered. This list is not an endorsement of included hospitals or associated healthcare providers.
