  • Reduced energy usage by almost 20% relative to 2012 baseline
  • Eliminated 3.5 million pieces of Styrofoam across the System by switching to eco-friendly serviceware in our cafeterias and paper cups on patient units
  • Eliminated plastic straws in non-patient, retail areas
  • Launched a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program so team members and residents can access local, sustainable foods while also supporting local farmers
  • Pioneered a No Antibiotics Ever program for chicken procurement at our hospitals and sponsored the Buy Fresh, Buy Local program
