Crothall Healthcare, along with four other Compass Group North America companies – Morrison Healthcare, TouchPoint Support Services, Canteen and Foodbuy – recently joined Practice Greenhealth, a nonprofit organization of more than 1,300 healthcare organizations and suppliers that engages the healthcare sector in environmental stewardship. Practice Greenhealth helps members implement sustainable day-to-day operations in food and nutrition services, while improving patient safety and care through tools, best practices and knowledge, according to a news release.

Compass Group’s healthcare specialties similarly are committed to changing the healthcare culture by effectively promoting positive health changes in caregivers, patients and the community, according to the release. They work together to source and create healthy foods that energize the mind, body and spirit, while also creating cleaner, safer hospitals through better environmental practices. Compass Group’s Sustainability Platform is rooted in serving foods that are responsibly produced and practices that promote a smaller environmental footprint, the release noted.

“From their initiatives within hospitals to the broader initiatives and advancements of their parent company, Compass Group and its specialized healthcare experts are truly committed to the health of hospital patients, visitors, communities and the planet,” said Jeffrey Brown, Practice Greenhealth executive director. “It’s this type of commitment that makes them a natural fit in the Practice Greenhealth community—we welcome them as key Practice Greenhealth members focused on healthy food sourcing that promotes better nutrition and sustainable cleaning practices that promote safer environments within hospitals.”
