Kaiser Permanente's medical centers in Fremont and Hayward have been named winners of a national award from Practice Greenhealth, a national organization that promotes green practices, construction and resource conservation in health care.
The "Partner Awards," for Fremont Medical Center and Hayward Medical Center are two of 29 awards received recently by Kaiser Permanente facilities around the country, 15 in Northern California. The Fremont Medical Center was cited with a "Partners for Change" award, and Hayward Medical Center was recognized with a "Partner Recognition," for starting an environmental-stewardship program and achieving at least a 10 percent recycling rate for solid waste.
"These awards reflect the work that Kaiser Permanente is making system-wide in saving energy, purchasing safer materials, sourcing sustainable food and reducing waste," said Tom Hanenburg, Senior Vice President and Area Manager for Kaiser Permanente, Southern Alameda County.
