Practice Greenhealth provides practical guidance, training, consultation, and business solutions to help its members in their efforts to implement environmentally responsible practices. More than 1000 healthcare providers have joined Practice Greenhealth since 2008, indicating the growing commitment among the healthcare community to reduce its environmental impact.
“As healthcare facilities look for ways to become more operationally efficient, saving millions of gallons of precious water each year in the SPD might be the ideal place to start” says Jim Gaine, Director of Business Development, Design & Construction for Belimed. “We are an established leader in resource responsibility and our washer and sterilizer products have always been designed to use less water, utilities and chemicals resulting in a significant reduction in resource consumption.”
“One of our recent installations at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada has resulted in saving over 14 million of gallons of water each year. Multiply that across several projects we are currently working on and you can begin to appreciate the impact our solutions can have across the United States.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Belimed to the Practice Greenhealth member community,” stated Laura Wenger, executive director of Practice Greenhealth. “Their membership demonstrates a real commitment to improving the environmental impact on patients, staff and communities.”
Practice Greenhealth offers a variety of programs to its members, including environmental purchasing, sustainable operations, continuing education, webinars, networking opportunities, communications, and annual awards recognizing the achievements of member institutions.
