The Environmental Protection Agency last week presented AHA’s American Society for Health Care Engineering with its 2021 Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award, the program’s highest honor, for its long-term commitment to fighting climate change and protecting public health through energy efficiency. 

ASHE has received the Sustained Excellence Award for three consecutive years and the Partner of the Year award for five consecutive years.

“Receiving this award for a fifth year recognizes our members’ ongoing dedication to creating more sustainable health care facilities,” said Kara Brooks, ASHE sustainability manager. “We are excited to build on our previous success and support hospitals in achieving their goals.”
