The award honours Baycrest’s commitment to reducing health care’s ecological footprint, improving our climate change preparedness, and enhancing our resiliency to better deliver the compassionate care our community deserves.  

“The Green Hospital of the Year Award is a testament to Baycrest’s commitment to environmental excellence, encompassing energy, water, waste management, policy planning and pollution prevention,” says Scott Ovenden, President and CEO of Baycrest Hospital. “This award is not just a celebration of our achievements; it is a reminder of our responsibility to prioritize environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of healthcare delivery. We will continue to lead by example, fostering a healing environment that not only cares for our patients but also nurtures environmentally conscious practices in healthcare.” 

This was Baycrest Hospital’s first year participating in the scorecard and we received a silver designation. Baycrest and the BCGC redevelopment and facilities team recently started working on a five-year Energy Conservation Demand Management Plan, which will set targets to further reduce energy, water and gas consumption.

The Green Hospital Scorecard is Canada’s only comprehensive healthcare environmental performance benchmarking tool measuring energy conservation, water conservation, waste management and recycling, corporate commitment and pollution prevention. 

green-hospital-scorecard.pngAs a participating hospital, we reported on our environmental and sustainability initiatives, including our energy, waste and water data, through an online questionnaire and our results were provided to us in an easy-to-use scorecard summary showing our ratings in the various categories and in comparison, to our peers.
