MAHC Receives Silver Awards For Green Initiatives
Both Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare’s (MAHC) sites were recognized with silver awards by The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care last week.
The Green Hospital Scorecard evaluates environmental performance in five areas: energy, waste, water, pollution prevention, and corporate leadership, planning and management.
The scorecards for both sites show a year-over-year performance improvement in recycling, water usage and corporate leadership. In addition, the South Muskoka Site received a certificate of recognition noting honorable mention for achieving a top score in the energy category, while the Huntsville Site experienced a year-over-year reduction in waste generation.
CEO Natalie Bubela says the “we continue to make strides in reducing our carbon footprint through both corporate-wide initiatives like energy retrofits, and through grassroots efforts at the staff and departmental levels.”
