To date, 30 hospitals have participated in the Green Healthcare Programme:

  • Covering over 50% of total beds in Ireland.
  • From large acute hospitals to primary community continuing care (PCCC) facilities, and childrens’ hospitals. Primary, community and continuing care facilities can include services such as long stay care, community mental health and disability services, various day clinics, and dental treatment. Those involved in the programme are primarily long stay facilities.
  • Across all 4 Provinces.

The management and staff at all of these hospitals deserve credit for willingly joining the programme to endeavour to improve their organisations’ resource efficiency and bottom line.

It is essential that all of these and other hospitals fully commit to the principles of resource efficiency and implement the recommendations of the Green Healthcare Programme fully and properly.
