Practice Greenhealth launches hospital sustainability tool

Practice Greenhealth, a nonprofit membership and networking organization for sustainable healthcare, has announced a new tool designed to help hospital and health system professionals build support for sustainability by creating buy-in among key leaders.

The tool is called the Engaged Leadership Guide, and it includes strategies to address common misconceptions about sustainability, operational opportunities to embed environmental stewardship into existing strategic initiatives, power point templates and environmental programming worksheets.

"Practice Greenhealth has spent years coaching others who are working to change the organizational culture and it's very apparent to us that leaders can make or break a sustainability program, " said Janet Howard, director of Healthier Hospitals for Practice Greenhealth. "With the industry's increased focused on prevention and wellness in mind, Practice Greenhealth created our latest tool to help today's healthcare leaders successfully make the case for environmental stewardship as a part of an efficient, effective and well-run hospital.
