Simple ways you can reduce your facilities environmental footprint
Ecotex is Partnering with Hospitals to “Green” the Operating Rooms
The operating rooms are a tiny percentage of a hospital’s total physical footprint, however they have an outsized impact on a hospitals environmental footprint. Operating rooms, on average:
Are responsible for 40 to 60% of the organization’s total supply costs
Consume three to six times more energy per square foot than anywhere else in the facility
Produce Two-thirds of a hospitals regulated medical waste
Produce more than 30% of a facility’s waste
Hospitals are using reusable textiles to reduce their waste stream, reduce their carbon footprint while increasing staff comfort and protection. Ecotex supplies a full range of environmentally sustainable reusable surgical products including linen bundles, hybrid bundles, drapes, wrappers, and surgical gowns.
Our commitment to minimizing our environmental footprint has led us to the development of the CDHS program, an efficient solution for the Operating Room to simplify every step of the hospital’s supply chain.
Our team expertly packages the correct mix of reusables and disposables into one lightweight module. The modules are packaged in boxes and then labeled in accordance with Healthcare guidelines for medical devices. Each CDHS program is designed for your individual needs and supply chain requirements.
