Message from Tom Zenty, CEO of University Hospitals

Dear neighbors,

Thomas F. Zenty III, Chief Executive Officer, University Hospitals

At UH, our mission is simple: To Heal. To Teach. To Discover. As we think about the world around us to which our hospitals, health centers and offices are inextricably bound, it is clear that our Greening UH efforts support this mission.

To Heal: similar to our prescriptions for healing the body, we provide a hospital environment that supports healing with clean air, water and material interaction.

To Teach: we share our knowledge of the impact of the environment on the human body. Our employees are also our patients and our neighbors; the more we understand about our collective environmental health impacts, the more resilient we can be as a community.

To Discover: We continually seek new information to widen our lens of understanding the importance of environmental sustainability on human health. Our environmental health advocacy helps us discover this information through local, regional and national collaborations.

This year, our reporting focus is on the importance of healthy places, and UH made a fitting commitment to place and public health in 2016 through our sponsorship of a new, healthy way to move around our communities: the UHBikes public bike share system of Cuyahoga County and the City of Cleveland. This sponsorship demonstrates our commitment to community health and wellness with an emphasis on environmental sustainability. Please do read more about this and other environmental stewardship commitments as you enjoy the 2016 Progress Report on Sustainability, and thank you for taking the time to learn about our commitment to environmental health and wellness.

Regards,

THOMAS F. ZENTY III
Chief Executive Officer, University Hospitals
