Mayo Clinic in Arizona Joins Major Health Systems in the Healthier Hospitals Initiative

commits to Help Health Sector Reduce Environmental Footprint and Improve Health Outcomes

The Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) is pleased to announce that Mayo Clinic in Arizona has enrolled in HHI, a collaborative of leading health care institutions united to speed the health care sector toward environmental sustainability. HHI was launched by 12 hospital systems—Advocate Health Care, Bon Secours Health System, Catholic Health Initiatives, Dignity Health, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Inova Health System, Kaiser Permanente, MedStar Health, Partners HealthCare, Stanford University Medical Center, and Tenet Health Systems—along with Practice Greenhealth, Health Care Without Harm and the Center for Health Design, in May 2010.

HHI is a no-cost campaign to accelerate the adoption of sustainability practices in the day-to-day operations of hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. The goal is to help achieve the health care triple aim, for improved health of patients, staff, and community; reduced environmental impact by the sector; and considerable fiscal savings that reduce the overall national health care costs through better public health.

“Sustainability in health care is both a sound business decision and the right thing to do for improved public health and reduced environmental impact,” said Gary Cohen, President of Health Care Without Harm and Founder of HHI. “We welcome Mayo Clinic in Arizona—they have been a pioneer in the health care sector, and will be an integral part of our vibrant learning community.”

There are currently nearly 800 hospitals enrolled in HHI using their collective sustainability experience, purchasing power and industry representation to encourage the widespread use of proven sustainability practices i
