But by their very nature, hospitals typically require large amounts of energy: They are always open; they are always occupied with employees, patients and visitors; and they require advanced heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.
With this in mind—and recognizing the healthcare mantra "Do no harm" extends not only to patients and staff, but to the community and environment, as well—Valley Health System is proud to have joinedPractice Green Health,an organization that helps members of the healthcare sector become more efficient energy users and positions them as environmental stewards in their communities.
Over the past several years, we've committed ourselves to "going green" and taken many steps to reduce our footprint and help sustain the health of our community. We're excited to share our accomplishments with you.
