Awards and Certifications From April 11

UM Hospitals and Health Centers Receives Top Environmental Award: For the fifth consecutive year, the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers has been given the Environmental Leadership Circle Award, Practice Greenhealth’s most prestigious honor. Practice Greenhealth, a national membership organization of health care facilities committed to environmentally responsible operations, presented the award in Phoenix last week to recognize a number of facilities throughout the country that exemplify environmental excellence. In 2010, UMHHC recycled 1,846 tons. The same year, the organization saved more than 1 million kilowatt hours through its GreenIT energy programs for workstation electrical units. Additionally, utility conservation efforts have helped make UMHHC buildings approximately 9 percent more efficient since 2007 in BTUs used per square foot. More at www.practicegreenhealth.org.
