Healthcare Project

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description In April 2005, at the National Environment Partnership Summit in Chicago, Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) presented Sara Johnson, Pollution Prevention Program Manager of the New Hampshire Pollution Prevention Program (NHPPP) with a Champion for Change Award. The award recognized the NHPPP's efforts to promote mercury elimination and waste reduction and the coordination of the New Hampshire Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (NH3E). Sara Johnson has been working with healthcare facilities since 1998 promoting pollution prevention and, most recently, pharmaceutical management. With the help of Robert Bishop, Hazardous Waste Compliance, and Debbie Augustine, Foundation for Healthy Communities, New Hampshire is leading the way on environmental issues facing the healthcare industry today. The NHPPP also received an Environmental Merit Award in May from EPA Region 1-New England.

At the June NH3E meeting, the participants discussed bromated flame retardants in products, implementing environmental management systems, and ISO 14001 standards.
