Caring for our environment

Environmental health and human health are connected. As stewards of health, each of us has a responsibility to take a proactive approach to protect our natural resources through our operations and our role as a healthcare leader. Our commitment to a healthy environment is demonstrated in every day choices made across Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS).

The Office for a Healthy Environment provides strategies, resources and education for teammates across CHS to engage in sustainability through professional and personal action.
