New York Hospital Queens recognizes the critical interdependence between human health and the health of the planet. Our hospital is working to reduce the environmental impact of our building's energy and water use and is committed to the continued development of greener healthful practices.
Recognizing that sustaining a healthy environment is essential to maintaining both personal and public health, New York Hospital Queens is dedicated to promoting healthy patients and communities locally and globally by safeguarding our environment. NYHQ fulfills its obligation to protect and preserve the earth's resources by seeking innovative ways to conserve, reduce, reuse, and recycle by its own actions and through partnerships with others.
Realization of these principles will be achieved by the full participation and sustained commitment of all our employees, medical staff and vendors. We believe it is the responsibility of every healthcare organization to provide the healthiest and safest environment to its patients, staff and community.
NYHQ's Sustainability Program aligns directly with the goals of the hospital - to create the safest and healthiest environment for our patients, staff and community.
