Maryland Hospitals and Environmental Sustainability:
Green Health-Care Facilities

The fall 2012 installment of the Rosenberg Dialogue Series explores the ways in which environmental sustainability has become a priority for the health-care sector and presents examples of successful collaborations from the Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment Initiative.

Panelists include:

  • Joan Plisko, technical director, Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment
  • Clifford Mitchell, director, Environmental Health Bureau, Prevention and Health Promotion Administration, Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Alan Lyles, Henry A. Rosenberg Professor of Public, Private and Nonprofit Partnerships, facilitates.

Health care is a vital component of Maryland's economy, but health-care facilities face many worksite and environmental challenges. For health-care providers, there is also a moral imperative to create a resilient health-care system that benefits citizens as well as organized stakeholders. Achieving this balance within resource constraints requires management efficiency and operational effectiveness. How can these goals be achieved affordably and reliably? What are the opportunities for public-private-sector collaboration?
