Planetary Health & the Lab

Climate change is impacting our patients' health and our ability to deliver care – and the Canadian health sector is among the worst in the world for greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. But we can do something!

Medical staff at Providence and partners are working for change – including through low carbon care, reducing operating room waste and other hospital waste, reducing medication use, avoiding unnecessary testing, and reducing food waste.

At a recent PHC event, Dr. Andre Mattman and Dr. Victor Leung from the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine shared their inspiring and innovative visions for improving environmental sustainability at Providence.
