Oshkosh, WI (January 20, 2011) – ImproMed, Inc. is proud to announce Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic is ImproMed’s 2nd Annual Green Friendly Hospital of the Year award winner. This is the second time ImproMed has given out the award to a hospital for showing how the clinic demonstrates exemplary efforts at becoming more environmentally friendly.
Nominated by the hospital’s Marketing Coordinator, Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic was selected to receive this award because of their commitment to protecting the environment through green-friendly initiatives in their building and their community.
For years the clinic has been stewards to the environment: in 2005 the clinic launched their largest effort with the installation of 480 solar modules on seven roof surfaces that the clinic estimates now provides them with 30% of their annual electrical needs, in 2006 their administrative office added water-efficient appliances, and in 2007 they completed an extensive pond and stream restoration project in conjunction with their town to improve flood control and enhance the habitat for migratory birds.
Aside from physical changes, they have also focused their environmental efforts in the use of their technology. In the last 6 years, Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic has digitized their X-rays, utilized scanning and .pdf printers for a reduction in printed paper, introduced digital signatures, and launched Electronic Medical Records.
As the winner of this award, Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic receives an engraved glass plaque, and goodies from Accelerated Pay, in-touch Mobile, RmCards.com and ImproMed.
ImproMed would also like to commend Providence Animal Hospital in Mt. Juliet, TN, for their nomination in this category. Although not chosen as the Green Friendly Hospital of the Year, Providence Animal Hospital was selected to receive the Honorable Mention because of the hospital’s strong commitment to conservation through the utilization of eco-friendly materials, installation of energy star appliances and implementing a paper-lite practice. Being chosen as the Honorable Mention, Providence Animal Hospital received a framed certificate, and goodies from Accelerated Pay, in-touch Mobile, RmCards.com and ImproMed.
