At Martha’s Vineyard Hospital (MVH), a commitment to caring for the community extends to the island’s ecosystem. That’s why MVH supports environmentally friendly practices like responsible waste and energy management. Even the hospital building itself embodies this sense of stewardship, implementing cutting-edge technologies and strategies that earned it LEED certification.
These efforts were recently expanded by a new collaboration between the MVH Facilities Department and the Massachusetts General Hospital Biomedical Engineering Department, which launched in January 2019. This program is designed to enhance the management of medical equipment life cycles and the number of patients they serve.
Taken together, these steps support MVH’s goals: to enhance the quality of care for patients, to improve the island’s environmental health, and to increase health care services.
