This is the first time ImproMed has given out the award to a hospital for showing how their hospital demonstrated exemplary efforts at becoming more environmentally friendly.
Nominated by the hospital’s owner, Dr. Dianne Soule was selected to receive this award because of her dedication to making their newly-remodeled facility more green friendly through the reusing of materials including siding, making use of 100% recycled natural fibers in their insulation, installing a high efficiency furnace and a bike rack to encourage staff to ride to work, and replacing old bulbs and lighting.
The hospital also goes out of its way to recycle materials from the office such as cardboard, plastic and aluminum cans, uses only environmentally safe cleaning products, recycled paper towels and paper, and stainless steel feeding dishes for the pets for reuse.
