The US healthcare system consumes approximately
32 billion gallons of water and $6.5 billion in energy per year while producing 2 million tons of waste. Can costs be reduced in other methods?
Every day that a healthcare provider burns more energy, uses more water, and creates more waste than it requires is another day of pouring both money and resources down the drain.
Every unit of energy, water, and waste processing is purchased at the expense of investment directly enhancing the quality of patient care.
