Regions Hospital | 60 of the Greenest Hospitals in America 2017

Regions Hospital (St. Paul, Minn.). HealthPartners' Regions Hospital partnered with Xcel Energy in 2009 to improve energy efficiency through several unique initiatives, including replacing parking lot lamps with LED bulbs, installing occupancy sensors to control lighting across the hospital and converting OR lighting structures to LED lights. In five years, Regions realized energy savings of more than $1.17 million and received more than $400,000 in Xcel Energy rebates. Regions Hospital spread the sustainability mission to its food as well, partnering with local vendors for Food-to-Hogs, a program that picks up food waste and processes it to eventually feed locally raised hogs. The city of St. Paul recognized Regions' environmental stewardship with a St. Paul Sustainability Award in 2016.
