Michigan Green Healthcare Conference logoWhile it may seem daunting to revamp your hospital to become more sustainable, there are several ways hospitals can reduce their environmental footprints, saving costs and improving patient outcomes at the same time.

The MHA Michigan Green Healthcare Conference includes general and breakout sessions that dive deeper into the positive impacts Michigan hospitals and other healthcare organizations have made by encouraging sustainability in healthcare.
