Shortly after submitting your letter of intent to join GGHH, we will send you a letter of confirmation welcoming you to the Network along with a welcome packet. The welcome packet will guide you on activating your account and membership on GGHH Connect, our online social collaboration platform exclusively for GGHH members. Here, you will be able to:
- Update and manage your membership information and account.
- Submit GGHH self assessments and case studies.
- Access, and participate in, goal communities based on your chosen GGHH Agenda goals. In the goal communities you will find tools, resources, case studies, fellow members, and experts to inform and assist you in your work.
Once you’ve logged on to GGHH Connect we will ask you to fill out the your member profile with basic information related to the your hospital/health care facility/health system/health, professional and academic organization, your size, contact information, and the GGHH Agenda goals you have chosen to work on.
We will be in touch with your organization regularly and hope that you will keep us informed as your work evolves as well. Every year around the anniversary of when you became a GGHH member, you will be reminded to enter information regarding your progress towards achieving your annual objectives and the overall Agenda goals.
Entering data regarding your progress each year will enable you and GGHH to track and publicize your progress and assist you in your work in the coming year. G GHH also encourages members to submit a case study highlighting their successes in working towards the Agenda Goals.
These case studies will help to inspire others to follow in your footsteps, help to document the concrete achievements that GGHH members have achieved individually and in aggregate. Moreover, they can serve as the basis for generating publicity that highlights what is possible and which can motivates others to join the effort.
To submit a case study, please complete the case study template and send it to email@example.com. Once received, submissions will be reviewed and considered for publication on greenhospitals.net. Please let us know if you have any question related to GGHH and your membership.
As a GGHH Member you have access to a variety of resources to assist you in your sustainability work and promote your dedication to reducing the environmental footprint of your institution. Click here to learn more
