CHA honored for environmental sustainability efforts

Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) recently received the 2007 Partner Recognition Award presented by Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E). A teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a regional health-care system with three hospitals and more than 20 primary care practices, CHA — including all of its hospital campuses in Cambridge, Somerville, and Everett — was recognized as an example of how hospitals can and should improve the environment while maintaining quality patient care.

Since 2002, H2E has honored deserving health-care facilities and organizational partners for their remarkable achievements in improving the environmental performance of the health-care industry. CHA was the only Massachusetts hospital system to receive the Partner Recognition Award and one of six in the state to be recognized by H2E for environmental leadership.
