GREENING THE SURGICAL SERVICES

Anne Arundel Medical Center

April 27th, 11:30 am-1:30 pm

AAMC is a national leader in greening its surgical services operation! AAMC replaced operating room surgical lights with LEDs and started a program to move from disposable single use medical devices to reprocessed ones. The hospital started a surgical services recycling program and took additional steps to reduce the amount of operating room waste. At this informative event, experts from Practice Greenhealth’s Greening the OR program will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

Agenda:

Lunch will be offered at 11:30, which attendees are invited to enjoy during the program, beginning promptly at 11:45
