Value of sustainability initiatives in surgical suites


Practice Greenhealth’s report demonstrates how your hospital can save money – up to $56,000 per operating room annually – while improving environmental and community health.

Leading hospitals are targeting the surgical suite to reduce waste, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and supply costs. Those participating in Practice Greenhealth’s Environmental Excellence Awards reported combined savings of more than $58.6 million in their ORs last year. Sustainability strategies also helped prevent nearly 13,000 tons of waste from going to the landfill in 2017.
