Mercy Medical Center receives top environmental award from Ohio Hospital Association

The Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) recently named Mercy Medical Center as the recipient of the 2012 John Chapman Award for demonstrating exceptional environmental stewardship. Mercy was also one of 10 Ohio hospitals that received the 2012 Melvin Creeley Environmental Leadership Award. OHA’s Environmental Leadership Council selected Mercy to receive the John Chapman Award from a group of 10 Melvin Creeley Environmental Leadership Award honorees who are recognized for promoting sound environmental practices through environmental stewardship and exemplifying the best practices for other hospitals to follow. The John Chapman Award recognizes a hospital or health system that has shown excellence in initiating or supporting pollution prevention programs. Results of Mercy’s focus on energy conservation, recycling, buying green and building green have been realized across the hospital. For three years in a row, Mercy has earned the U.S. EPA’s prestigious ENERGY STAR award, the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. Mercy recycled more than 51 tons of non-hazardous waste material in 2011 and thousands of light bulbs and batteries, plus Mercy recycles 10 to 15 tons of cardboard monthly. Mercy’s energy conservation efforts from 2009-2011 have yielded savings of nearly $2.7 million through reductions in electricity, water and natural gas consumption. Mercy will receive the John Chapman Award on June 12 during the OHA Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio.
