Creating a Healthier Environment - Reducing Energy Consumption
Hospitals inevitably consume large amounts of resources to provide patients with an exemplary level of care. At Montefiore, we do not use that as an excuse for an inability to address indoor, environmental and community health. Part of Montefiore’s mission is to advance the health of the communities we serve, and here at Montefiore we feel that cannot be accomplished without addressing sustainability, environmental and community health, and their place within the healthcare setting. Montefiore is committed to becoming the most sustainable healthcare provider in New York City by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions through aggressive waste and energy reduction programs, educating staff, patients, their families and the community about the environmental benefits of their actions, and by continually looking into new technologies to help us achieve our reduction goals.
