Sustainability remains a high priority for facility managers and their organizations, and now 68 of the greenest hospitals in the United States are receiving recognition for their efforts in this area, according to Becker's Hospital Review.

Healthcare facilities featured on the list have made community stewardship at the environmental level a top priority and incorporated green building efforts into expansions, as well as embraced projects to reduce waste and energy consumption.

The Becker's editorial team considered nominations and conducted editorial research when developing the list. Several of the hospitals on the list have been recognized with Practice Greenhealth awards, U.S. Green Building Council recognition and accolades from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
