Hospital Go Green Committee
Stony Brook University Hospital wants to continue to be recognized as an environmentally conscious Healthcare institution. Using our resources wisely, reducing solid waste and increasing our recycling are goals that we have put into action. To support our effort, the Hospital has a "Go Green" committee made up of dedicated staff from various departments, clinical and non-clinical, working towards the Greening effort. In 2009, we increased our recycling rate to 25% and in turn reduced our solid waste stream. We will continue to reduce our solid waste through the implementation of instrument and device re-manufacturing whenever feasible as well as reduce our use of energy resources.
