The Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) recently named Mercy Medical Center as the recipient of the 2012 John Chapman Award for demonstrating exceptional environmental stewardship.

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.
