Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare Leading the Way in Green Solutions

Respect for and care of our environment is an important aspect to life around the Muskoka region. Our communities, residents and businesses alike seek ways to improve energy efficiency and lessen waste output. A great example of innovative solutions being put to work successfully in our area can be seen through Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare Hospitals, Huntsville District Memorial Hospital (HDMH) and South Muskoka Memorial Hospital (SMMH).

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAH) has announced the earning of a Silver Rating for their 2016 Green Scorecard from the Ontario Hospital Association. The Green Scorecard is a program put in place to encourage and commend eco-friendly practices within hospital systems. In addition to focusing on improvements regarding energy use, waste, water and pollution prevention programs and solutions are reviewed. There must also be positive integration of corporate leadership, management and planning regarding green energy practices.

At Huntsville District Memorial Hospital, a recent retrofit of lighting has seen a reduction in energy use from 37.1 gigajoules down to 31.3, in just one year. The new lighting was part of an overall energy efficient upgrade to HDMH’s lighting, heating and cooling systems. South Muskoka Memorial Hospital was ranked among the top 5 hospitals in energy use and waste reduction.

 Since 2010, MAHC has been working to improve the carbon-footprint of its hospitals with efforts in sustainable practices by joining the Green Healthcare program. Since that time, HDMH has reduced energy use by 22%, and at SMMH by 25%. These are significant amounts considering how much of an impact hospitals can have on the local environment.
