One of our Health System priorities is to reinforce environmentally responsible behaviors which support our University's sustainability initiative. We have become an industry leader in various stewardship initiatives that emphasize: reduce, recycle, reuse. We will continue to enlighten each other toward optimization of our natural and man-made resources.
Over the years, we have received several environmental awards in recognition of our efforts. For the past two years (2009 & 2010), we were awarded the highest environmental achievement award presented by Practice Greenhealth, a national membership organization of health care facilities committed to environmentally responsible operations. The UMHHC was named as a member of the Environmental Leadership Circle, Practice Greenhealths most prestigious award. This award recognizes health care facilities that exemplify environmental excellence and set the highest standards for environmental practices in health care.
The environment is one area where it is important for proud Maize and Blue Wolverines to "go green."
Thank you to the UMHS staff for supporting our ongoing efforts that make us an environmentally responsible organization.
