A brief description of the hospital’s sustainability initiatives:

The “Healthier Happier” campaign launched Fall 2014 in an effort to integrate sustainability into the daily practices of the Hospital. Modeled after the Healthier Hospitals initiative, GW Hospital is proud to be retro-commissioning of the hospital's entire operating facilities, including energy efficient lighting, battery recycling opportunities, use of eco-friendly cleaning chemicals, providing healthier food options, and increased cardboard recycling. GW Hospital is also a member of a smarter purchasing coalition, and an active partner in the Capital Partners Solar Project.
