Congratulations to Michigan Medicine, which recently earned an Environmental Excellence Award from Practice Greenhealth!

This award is given to health systems that exhibit superior performance in environmental sustainability — covering a wide range of programs and activities. Winners have also made substantive progress on mercury elimination.

“Despite immense challenges, the health care sector has continued to step up to the challenge of addressing environmental factors that impact health,” said Gary Cohen, Practice Greenhealth founder and president. “These hospitals are demonstrating that smarter, more sustainable operations and values-driven purchasing can transform a sector while moving toward a more expansive definition of health.”Click here to learn more about Practice Greenhealth and the Environmental Excellence Award.
