About us

Body

Practice Greenhealth is a health care membership organization that provides sustainability solutions that benefit patients and employees, communities, financial security, and the environment.

We started out as the result of a first-of-its kind agreement between a health care association and a federal agency with shared goals for environmental stewardship and sustainability in health care.

Today, more than 1 in every 3 hospitals is part of our network.

Our members and partners include hospitals and health care systems, health care providers, manufacturers and service providers, architectural, engineering and design firms, group purchasing organizations, and affiliated nonprofit organizations.

Practice Greenhealth is the health care sector’s go-to source for information, tools, data, resources, and expert technical support on sustainability initiatives that help our members meet their goals.

We offer practical and cost-effective programs to members and continue to educate, motivate, and engage the entire sector to move toward higher standards of care.

Working closely with Practice Greenhealth, Health Care Without Harm seeks to transform health care worldwide so it reduces its environmental footprint and becomes a leader in the global movement for environmental health and justice.

Let Practice Greenhealth help you lead change in your hospital. To get started today, email join@practicegreenhealth.org.

A roadmap toward healthier hospitals

In 2012 with the support of 12 sponsoring health systems, Practice Greenhealth launched the Healthier Hospitals Initiative, a three-year initiative available free to any hospital that committed to take on one or more of six challenges to improve sustainability performance. More than 950 hospitals participated from 2012 to 2015. The success, lessons learned, and challenge structure of the Healthier Hospitals Initiative live on in Practice Greenhealth’s programming.
