Green Hospitals and Healthcare
Green Hospitals and Healthcare today in most industries in the United States are finding new ways of becoming more environmentally sustainable as a way of cutting costs and/or in fulfilling their corporate citizenship missions. Although hospitals and other healthcare organizations are conscious of these efforts, they face the unique challenge of round-the-clock operations, hazardous waste management, large- scale staffing and extreme energy consumption.
Healthcare leaders are aware of the role their organizations play in the community, but sometimes are unsure how they can make the business case for going green to their board or other staff. By learning from your peers, this session will address the myriad ways that you can change the culture of your organization as you cut long term operating costs, increase staff recruitment, retention and patient satisfaction, while becoming more visible within the community as an exemplar for environmental sustainability.
Join the Central Illinois American College of Healthcare Executives and Hermine Levey Weston, Russell Sedmak, Rick Beckler, and David Rahija for this 90-minute webinar, including Q&A, as an opportunity to increase your knowledge of Green Hospitals and Healthcare.
