Summary of Sustainability for Healthcare Management
A Leadership Imperative
To be a leader in contemporary health care, build sustainability into your business plan.
Hospitals and health care providers are among the most significant consumers of Earth’s resources and should make sustainability the bedrock of their missions, cultures and operations. Hospitals can be corporate role models in practicing sustainability and in helping prevent the very diseases and conditions that bring patients to their doors. Using real-life examples and stories from the fictional “Memorial Hospital” and its cast of characters, authors Carrie R. Rich, J. Knox Singleton and Seema S. Wadhwa engagingly describe how hospitals and health care providers can make a difference – not only for those they care for today, but for the patients and families of tomorrow. While this very practical handbook has tedious moments, getAbstract recommends it to health care leaders who want to embed the principles of sustainability into everything they do.
In this summary, you will learn
- What sustainability means
- Why health care providers should practice sustainability
- How to build sustainability in your health care business
