Dr. Jeff Thompson, CEO, Gundersen Health System, discusses the current environmental issues facing us today, such as global warming and industrial pollution. Learn and understand the impact on the environment from a large health organization, understand their plan to address it and be encouraged by the results. Gundersen Health System’s environmental program, Envision®, is a model for healthcare providers nationwide. They have developed a portfolio of innovative “green” energy projects designed to lower costs and lead the industry in environmental stewardship. With U.S. hospitals spending more than $5 billion on energy costs annually, finding solutions to rising energy costs has become critically important. Gundersen is proving there are sustainable approaches to energy utilization that go hand-in-hand with solid financial business decisions.
