Why transportation?

Transportation toolkit


(Transportation toolkit) Transportation intersects with health care facilities in the ways that employees, patrons, and supplies travel to and from hospitals and satellite facilities, all of which contribute to poor air quality, hospital greenhouse gas emissions, and adverse environmental and community health outcomes. The health care sector is in a position to model and advocate for alternative and healthier modes of transit. Innovative transportation strategies can improve individual and public health by inviting employees out of their cars and into more active and healthy modes of travel, greening fleet vehicles, and integrating sustainable purchasing practices.
