A brief description of the healthcare facility’s sustainability initiatives:

In early 2016, UK HealthCare formed a sustainability steering committee to advance and coordinate sustainability initiatives throughout the organization. The early priorities for this group involve developing and deploying a comprehensive set of waste reduction strategies and program. The scope of the committee's work extends well beyond materials management. The mission, charge, and composition of the group can be found below. UK HealthCare has also joined the Healthier Hospital Initiative based on a recommendation from this committee.

For more information about this committee, please contact Brittany U'Wren at 859-218-3799 or Brittany.uwren@uky.edu. The UK HealthCare Sustainability Steering Committee also maintains a sustainability section on the UK HealthCare CareWeb site (requires login).
