Our Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability

Since 2012, our overall energy consumption as measured in BTUs per square foot (gas and electricity) has been reduced by 19.1%.

The health of our environment – both in- and outside a medical site of care – impacts the health, safety and well-being of our patients. With that in mind, our affiliated hospitals contribute to their local communities and take care to operate in a manner to efficiently utilize resources and protect the environment. We value that which sustains life – the air we breathe, water we drink and the earth’s many natural resources.

Through the measures outlined in our 2021 Environmental Sustainability report and more, CHS and its affiliated hospitals are actively managing important aspects of our operations to support delivery of safe, quality care while working to minimize our impact on the surrounding environment. Our commitment to sustainability is an important part of providing value for the people and communities we serve.
