Partner Profile
Mercy Hospital, Chicago's first teaching hospital, has been caring for Chicago since 1852 and is committed to excellence and providing the best in healthcare for its community. Patients find state-of-the-art care in a compassionate, caring environment. Mercy Hospital and Medical Center is leading the way in the healthcare green movement, both in Chicago and the nation, committing to purchase 10 percent of its energy requirements from green sources. "Mercy is taking great strides to reduce the impact our operations have on our environment," says Sister Sheila Lyne, RSM, President and CEO of Mercy Hospital & Medical Center. Purchasing clean energy is on of the most important steps we can take to improve our facility's environmental footprint and contribute to the health and well-being of the people of Illinois." The decision to purchase green power is only one component of Mercy's Green Initiative and commitment to reduce its environmental impact for the good of the hospital and the local and global environment and communities.
