Lee's Summit Medical Center Participates In Earth Day Celebration As Part Of Ongoing Green Efforts

Lee's Summit Medical Center

Lee’s Summit Medical Center (LSMC)—part of HCA Midwest Health System, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider—will participate in Earth Day activities the week of April 21, 2014.  An information booth will be set up outside the cafeteria from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. with an emphasis on the hospital’s ongoing efforts to adopt greener waste disposal practices. 

Lee’s Summit Medical Center is partnering with Stericycle, a nationwide company that focuses on integrated waste solutions, in its Comingle Single Stream Recycle Program.  Matt Sogard, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, Lee’s Summit Medical Center, notes the importance of a sustainable, conscientious culture amongst medical staff and employees.  “We are responsible citizens of the Earth and stewards of our resources,” says Sogard.  “As one of the community’s leading healthcare providers, it is important that we take a proactive stance in recycling efforts, including medical, kitchen and office waste. Ongoing education of our employees and building awareness on this topic important to all of us is essential.”

The Earth Day event is also an opportunity to recruit Green Team Committee members from the hospital who  meet quarterly to establish green initiatives and take ownership of LSMC’s ongoing environmentally friendly policies.
