2017 Recipient: Horizon Health Network
Energy sustainability plays an important, yet often unrecognized role in healthcare. In order to formally recognize the importance of energy sustainability and the long-term impact on patients and communities, Horizon Health Network established its Energy Network in 2013. The Network provides leadership and direction while ensuring sustainability in energy and CO2 equivalent reduction for all Horizon facilities, including five Regional Hospitals, plus a myriad of healthcare facilities of various sizes, service base, and patient populations .
