Health Care Providers Earn Kudos for Environmental Management

Health Care Providers Earn Kudos for Environmental Management

The nonprofit Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) has announced the recipients of its annual awards, which recognize U.S. hospitals and health care organizations for their environmental efforts, including waste minimization and the elimination of the use of mercury.

H2E is an industry-wide collaborative effort to move the healthcare industry towards environmental sustainability through education of healthcare professionals about waste and toxicity reduction and embracing the use of safer products and healthcare practices.

Each year, H2E honors the efforts and achievements of partner health care facilities with national recognition. The H2E awards are considered the premier national recognition of environmental achievement in health care.

Award winners will be recognized in leading trade publications and at the annual H2E Awards Ceremony and Workshops at CleanMed 2006, the premier national conference for environmental leaders in health care. Award winners will also be recognized at the annual conferences of the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the American Society for Healthcare Environmental Services (ASHES), and other ceremonies across the country.

A complete list of award winners, both past and present, is available online.
