ROCHESTER, Minn. — Multiple Mayo Clinic locations have received national recognition for their sustainability efforts through Practice Greenhealth, a national organization dedicated to reducing health care’s impact on the environment. The annual awards recognize health care organizations that have implemented programs to improve environmental performance and continuously work toward higher sustainability goals.
This is the first time that Mayo Clinic's Arizona campus has received a Practice Greenhealth award. The campus was noted for efforts to conserve energy, and reduce and recycle waste. “It is gratifying to see more Mayo Clinic campuses applying for ─ and being recognized for ─ their environmental sustainability efforts,” says Henry Tazelaar, M.D., chair of the Mayo Clinic Green Advisory Council. “These awards reflect tremendous efforts of many staff members to champion sustainability efforts in their work areas and who live the value of stewardship. They also help to reflect Mayo Clinic’s dedication to environmental practices that protect the health and well-being of our patients, staff and communities.”
In addition, Mayo Clinic Health System campuses in Eau Claire and La Crosse, Wisconsin, as well as Mayo Clinic's Florida and Rochester campuses received awards.
