NewYork-Presbyterian is resolved to put patients first in everything we do and we recognize the intrinsic relationship between the health of people and the health of our environment. By adopting sustainable practices in the hospital and community, we aim to create a healthier environment for our patients, their families, and our staff, and to improve health outcomes for the communities we serve.
NewYork-Presbyterian has established Sustainability Leadership Committees at all six campuses in order to identify and pursue opportunities to reduce the hospital’s environmental impact. These committees include leadership from across the hospital including Administration, Operations, Nursing, Perioperative Services, Support Services, Facilities, Environmental Health and Safety, Government and Community Affairs. The Sustainability Council sets goals across key areas to reduce waste, conserve energy, and minimize the organization's overall environmental footprint. These committee members drive our green efforts serving as liaisons between the committee and their respective departments.
