APD is committed to sustainability, which we see as part of our strategy to ensure the continued health of our community, organization, and environment. It is an essential factor in sustaining our healthcare mission in the community. We are focused on advanced sustainability leadership and on reducing the waste of healthcare resources including:

  • Recycling over 100 tons of materials each year
  • Reducing energy consumption through the use of efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems
  • Educating and rewarding staff to make sustainable choices such as the use re-useable dinner ware in the cafeteria
  • Reducing styrofoam products and offering recycled and compostable materials as alternatives
  • Providing education through local access television for the community on sustainability efforts
  • Reducing incinerated waste through new safer and cleaner technology that reduces pollution
  • Incorporating Green Building solutions into the planned hospital renovation and expansion project
  • Reducing our organizational carbon foot print by approximately 250 metric tons of CO2 per year
