The Champion for Change Award honors businesses that supply the health care sector who have not only taken steps to improve their organization's green practices, but 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. "Synergy Health has extended their commitment 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 benefits, it won't increase operating costs.  The implications are clear — given the return on investment, all hospitals should adopt and expand their sustainability programs.  

CEO and Founder of Synergy Health, Dr. Richard Steeves said, "We have a universal commitment to provide products and services to the health care industry that are environmentally responsible. We have taken this oath to further to improve our internal operations, and are honored to be recognized for it."

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.

Synergy Health acquired Tampa-based SRI/Surgical Express in 2012 and recently relocated its corporate headquarters for the Americas to Tampa. Synergy provides reusable gowns, drapes, towels and stainless instruments to hospitals and surgery centers nationwide, offering an environmentally attractive alternative to single use items.

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