Martha Jefferson Hospital received a 2010 "Partner for Change Award" from Practice Greenhealth, a national membership organization for healthcare facilities committed to environmentally responsible operations.
The award recognizes healthcare facilities that continuously improve and expand upon their mercury elimination, waste reduction and pollution prevention programs. At a minimum, facilities applying for this award must be recycling 10 percent of their total waste, have a mercury elimination program in place with a plan for total elimination and have developed other successful pollution prevention programs.
Martha Jefferson Hospital will continue to be committed to reducing our environmental impact, and we are continually monitoring our progress to improve our performance now and as we move into our new facilities.
