Seattle Children’s has long been a leader and a believer in sustainability, and is proud of the work they have already accomplished in many areas like recycling, transportation and green building. As one of the first medical centers in the country to apply the methods and scientific rigor of the Toyota Production System to healthcare, Children's has adapted the method as an organization-wide philosophy and improvement approach called Continuous Improvement and Innovation (CII). Removing waste in their systems is an extension of our CII work.
