Vermont Hospitals Commit to a Healthier Future with the First Statewide Enrollment in the Healthier Hospitals Initiative
Date:9/12/2013

Reston, VA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI), Vermont Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (VAHHS) and Efficiency Vermont announced today that Vermont is the first state to commit to enrolling all of its hospitals in HHI, a collaborative of leading health care institutions united to speed the health care sector toward environmental sustainability. Two Vermont hospitals, Fletcher Allen Health Care and Central Vermont Medical Center, are already HHI members and leaders in implementing sustainability initiatives. HHI was launched by thirteen 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, Tenet Health Systems and Vanguard 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 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. 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 in six key “Challenge” areas:

  •     Engaged Leadership
  •     Healthier Food
  •     Leaner Energy
  •     Less Waste
  •     Safer Chemicals
  •     Smarter Purchasing
