Water is vital to caring for patients, maintaining proper hygiene and keeping a clean environment. So, how can health care facilities join the common effort to conserve water?
Landscaping, irrigation and outdoor washing have been reduced and all Sutter Health facilities are reviewing water consumption and looking for ways to save.
“I think the public expects to see that rather than lush green lawns during a drought,” says Susan Frank, president of Suma Landscaping Inc., which maintains the grounds at all the Alta Bates Summit campuses.
The goal is to permanently reduce water use while providing patients with high-quality care and personal service.
