Women & Infants among 50 greenest hospitals

Posted 10/21/13

PROVIDENCE – Women & Infants Hospital has been named one of the 50 greenest hospitals in America by Becker’s Hospital Review list.

The hospital was recognized for its role in forming Hospitals for a Healthy Environment in Rhode Island, along with several other hospitals in the area. The mission of Becker’s is to aid health care providers in the state in implementing environmentally sustainable practices, such as reducing medical devices that contain toxic compounds.

Women & Infants was also recognized for its South Pavilion, which opened in 2009 and earned LEED Gold certification in 2010.

Women and & Infants was the only hospital in the state to receive this recognition, and one of few hospitals recognized in New England.

To determine the greenest hospitals in the country, Becker’s conducted research and analyzed sustainability information from sources such as Health Care Without Harm, Practice Greenhealth, Healthier Hospitals Initiative, the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program, the EPA and other health care sustainability organizations and experts, according to a press release. •
