What's Good for the Patient is Good for the Planet

As health care providers, we recognize the interdependence between human health and our environment. It is important that the products we use, the energy we consume and the waste we generate be optimized to ensure safety both inside and outside the walls of our care centers. As such, Dignity Health has made key partnerships and implemented programs to do just that.
