Getting Your Hospital to Go Green
Getting your hospital to "Go Green" does not start with a Sustainability Rating Systems, it's about the attitude your organization has in defining a systematic change to how you approach projects.

So what do you do to minimize the risk and achieve the rewards? You have to have a plan, a process that leads to much deeper sets of questions and requires significant self evaluation. In regard to Sustainability, it's a matter of asking three questions: Who are you? What are you? and Where do you want to go?
