At Rochester Regional Health, we understand that the health of our community, environment, and finances are all intertwined. We’re managing all of our resources to reduce our overall environmental footprint and lead sustainability efforts in the Northeast. Hospitals can use more than double the amount of energy as commercial buildings and on average generate more than thirty-three pounds of waste per patient per day — we’re making Rochester Regional Health the exception.
