Special Report: Step-by-step sustainability

Janet Brown of Practice Greenhealth agrees that while facilities may show pockets of success, like in recycling or energy use, hospitals that are strong in several areas are less common. She calls for further involvement from the top to continue moving facilities forward.

“Sometimes it feels like we’re moving at a snail’s pace, but because I’ve had so many years invested in it, I can step back and see that we’ve really made progress,” says Brown. “For me personally, I think the biggest change is that more and more we’re seeing greening activities moving beyond grassroots and departmental programs, beyond the passionate individuals that make it happen because they care about it, to engaged leadership making the top-down strategy work. The difference is everything.”
