First hospital in Central East Local Health Integration Network to achieve such a designation
SCARBOROUGH, ON (April 23, 2018) – Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) has officially achieved Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) designation at its Birchmount and General sites from the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) – the first hospital in the Central East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) to achieve such a designation.
Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) has received a rebate from Toronto Hydro of $51,000 for the hospital’s work to improve energy efficiency at its General site.
“We’re grateful to Toronto Hydro for recognizing our hospital’s commitment to sustainably reduce our electricity consumption,” said Rick Gowrie, Vice President, Capital Planning and Facilities Operations at SRH.
Currently, more than 1,500 people in Ontario are waiting for an organ transplant, and every three days someone dies waiting for their life-saving gift. Though most of us believe that organ donation is a good thing, only a quarter of us are registered donors.
Everyone is a potential organ and tissue donor with the ability to save up to eight lives.
