Taking Green Initiatives to the New Medical Facility Construction Site

By CME Corp Staff on Jan 8, 2020 4:44:33 PM

Most healthcare systems have a Green Initiative and are making great strides in reducing carbon emissions in their daily activities. To a large extent though, many are not looking at what happens at a new facility construction site. CME Corp’s Cindy Juhas recently published an article, “When green sites earn black marks” in Healthcare Purchasing News.

Cindy cited an article in Building Forward that stated “While green building and energy efficiency have been a rallying cry of the construction industry for nearly two decades, the amount of waste that’s produced at construction sites to build these more environmentally friendly structures has only continued to rise, as builders still simply throw out materials on-site that could be recycled or reused.”

3 Ways CME Corp Reduces Waste in Healthcare Construction Projects

By Cindy Juhas on Sep 26, 2019 12:05:53 PM

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as cited in a recent Building Forward article, 169 million tons of building construction and demolition waste was generated in 2015 (the latest period for which data is available.)  Only 38% of this debris was recovered for recycling.  This is a big number and one that many are looking to improve.  

CME has been working on decreasing the amount of waste generated at a construction site for years.  Not only is it important from a green perspective but decreasing waste at a construction site also helps the healthcare facility streamline activities at the site and ultimately facilitates on-time construction schedules.  All of these factors are extremely important to healthcare facilities.  

CME has focused on three specific areas to help decrease waste at healthcare construction sites.

There are 5,534 registered domestic hospitals, according to the American Hospital Association. Each one of those facilities is esti­mated to generate up to 25 pounds of waste per day per patient. The math seems to indicate that health care centers produce an endless stream of garbage at an unsustainable rate.
