Being Green²

big-green

“Is it true HYGIA can help our hospital make a positive impact on the environment and still save us money?”

Yes. Exponentially.

Saving Money While Going Green

HYGIA has saved customers and their communities millions of pounds of waste while simultaneously saving them millions of dollars. These days, everyone wants and needs to be more “green.” Our customers earn that distinction while receiving some $green$ back in return.

Before HYGIA, hospitals threw away large volumes of essential clinical commodities (ECCs) every minute of every day, creating enormous waste and disposal costs. Using our high quality, FDA cleared processes we transform these essential items into new, medically safe, reusable items. Every single item is individually inspected with an astounding (and documented) quality record of only 2 defects per 1,000,000 items—a record any manufacturer would love to have. 

How is Hygia Different?

HYGIA is unlike manufacturers or other reprocessors who do not understand ECCs or the opportunity cost they create by not properly managing the high volume of these objects found throughout a hospital. Furthermore, our FDA approved, tested, and verified processes avoid using harmful chemicals.

HYGIA saves millions of items from adding to landfills and even buys items from hospitals that are only prepared to partially commit to better ECC management through the Greenstart Donor Program.

136 hospitals across this US have become green² and are now reaping the benefits of more financially and environmentally economical business. It is time for you to join them. Contact us today.

  • UAB Hospital has partnered with HYGIA for reprocessing since 1999. We have enjoyed cost savings, quality products returned to us, and have participated in a "green" environment by preventing tons of items from going to the landfill.
