Johns Hopkins Hospital | 50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America 2015

Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore). The list of eco-friendly improvements Johns Hopkins Hospital has made in recent years is lengthy. The hospital converted to LED lighting in 33 of its operating rooms, installed 65,000 square feet of green roofing, sold 2,000 reusable cups with free water refills and segregated 13 separate waste streams for recycling. In 2015, a pilot program that involved bio-decontaminating over $90,000 worth of supplies from 18 isolation patient rooms using vaporized hydrogen peroxide earned Johns Hopkins Hospital an environmental "Trailblazer" award from Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment. The hospital was also recognized with the Greening the OR Circle of Excellence Award from Practice Greenhealth.
