History:

Given the growing demand for quality healthcare in the Carolinas, the number of hospitals and medical facilities has increased. As a result, the amount of medical–related waste generated has also increased along with the need to provide sustainable buildings and services. In response to this, CRA formed a Healthcare Sustainability Council in 2017.
