Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) is committed to developing a sustainable culture through environmental stewardship and partnerships with others to protect the environment and our communities’ health now and for future generations.
Chief Strategy Officer David Cannady recently talked with Deloitte Consulting on the ways BSMH is working with outside organizations like Cintrifuse, a Cincinnati-based innovation hub, to identify best practices an increase its sustainability efforts. “Given that other sectors are often more mature in their sustainability efforts, health care organizations can look to these multi-industry hubs like Cintrifuse to learn approaches and leading practices around supply-chain footprint reduction,” said Cannady. “These learnings provide a foundational infrastructure to help accelerate our efforts which are critical to our ministry and the overall landscape of health care.”
