Kaiser Permanente's San Rafael Hospital Recognized for Environmental Stewardship

For the fourth year, the San Rafael Medical Center has been honored with the Partners for Change Award by Practice Greenhealth, a national organization that promotes green practices, construction and resource conservation in health care.

To qualify for this honor, health facilities must meet a series of benchmarks, including a waste-recycling rate of at least 15 percent.

"Once again it is an honor to be recognized by Practice Greenhealth for our commitment to the environment and green health," said Support Services Administrator John Fannin. "Being environmentally friendly is the right thing to do, and, it’s also the fiscally responsible thing to do."

The medical center works to identify, promote, and implement environmentally-friendly, sustainable and cost-effective practices to conserve natural resources, minimize waste and increase recycling.

This year with the implementation of dual stream recycling bins, recycling is even easier at the San Rafael campus which already uses recycled water for all landscaping needs and is replanting with drought tolerant species.
