Partners HealthCare exec: Energy overhaul to save hospitals $15M annually

Boston Business Journal, April 6, 2012

Partners Healthcare, one of 10 hospital systems that has joined a nationwide health care consortium designed to reduce health care’s environmental impact, says it will save $15 million per year as part of an energy overhaul. Partners is the parent of Massachusetts General Hospital and the Brigham and Women's Hospital. The Healthier Hospitals Initiative, launched by California’s Kaiser Permanente, includes 500 hospitals nationwide who will take steps to conserve energy, reduce use of toxic chemicals, and reduce waste, including hazardous waste.
