15 Environmental Excellence Awards for Achievements in Sustainability

UH received 15 Environmental Excellence awards from Practice Greenhealth, including the prestigious System for Change award for our system-wide achievements in sustainability in 2013.

The System for Change Award recognizes health systems that are working cohesively to set system goals, track data, benchmark, and share successes in environmental performance.

Three of our hospitals also received the Practice Greenhealth Emerald Partner for Change Award. This award recognizes health care facilities that have well-developed environmental programs and continuously improve and expand upon these programs on the path to sustainability. The UH hospitals that earned the Emerald Partner for Change Award include University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center, University Hospitals Case Medical Center and University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center. UH Case Medical Center also received special recognition by receiving a “Circle of Excellence” for outstanding performance in the area of safer chemicals, and UH Ahuja Medical Center received the same accolade for outstanding performance in the area of waste reduction.

Additionally, University Hospitals Bedford Medical Center, University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center, University Hospitals Geneva Medical Center and University Hospitals Regional Hospitals (awarded to University Hospitals Bedford and University Hospitals Richmond medical centers separately) received the Greenhealth Partner for Change Award, which honors health care facilities that have begun to implement a number of environmental improvements.

Four of our hospitals also earned the Making Medicine Mercury-Free Award, recognizing hospitals that have virtually eliminated mercury from their facilities and have made a commitment to continue to be mercury-free.
