Kaiser Permanente's Roseville Medical Center is one of only three U.S. facilities named to the "Environmental Leadership Circle" by Practice Greenhealth, a national organization that promotes green practices in health care.
The leadership circle is considered the highest honor among the Reston, Va.-based group's 2013 Environmental Excellence Awards.
To qualify, health facilities must meet high standards in various segments, including waste recycling, medical waste management and eradication of mercury use.
Kaiser's Roseville Medical Center is at 1600 Eureka Road.
Nationwide, 29 Kaiser Permanente facilities were recognized for various awards by Practice Greenhealth. Fifteen of those facilities are in Northern California.
