We all play a role in ensuring a world full of good health, safety and security. As a company and integrated partner supporting health systems and their patients, Medline has spent more than 50 years making healthcare run better. Our efforts extend beyond our products and services and into the communities where we live and work, as well as low-resource communities around the world.
Here are just a few of our accomplishments from 2019:
- Our total carbon dioxide emissions per square foot of space was reduced by 5%, helping make Medline more eco-friendly and energy efficient.
- Medline ReNewal, our device-reprocessing arm of the business, reprocessed more than 5 million instruments, diverting more than 1 million pounds of waste from landfills.
- Through our Community Impact Grant program, we donated $350,000 to organizations focused on breast cancer, medical care transportation and healthcare for vulnerable populations.
- We led eight unique global health projects focused on supply chain optimization, perioperative efficiency and health education designed to empower communities and free up resources. We also donated $3.1 million in product to medical relief organizations.
While the information presented in our 2019 Social Responsibility Report is looking back a year, we’re proud of not only what we’ve accomplished, but the foundation we’ve set to continue helping make a lasting and sustainable impact on individuals and their communities, around the world, for years to come.
