The people who work at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) and St. Joseph’s Health Care (SJHC) are dedicated to keeping their patients healthy and now they are also doing something to keep their city healthy too.
On Monday, staff of St. Joseph’s Parkwood Hospital had the chance to be first in line to purchase some of the close to 1,000 trees that have been pre-ordered by staff from both LHSC and SJHC in support of ReForest London and as part of the Million Tree Challenge.
Dave Crockett, integrated vice-president of facilities management for both organizations said that was just one of the Million Tree Challenge initiatives undertaken by the two organizations.
“What this means for our employees is with just this one exercise, we can make a 1,000 tree contribution to the Million Tree Challenge,” said Crockett. “If we do this every year and it continues to grow, our goal is to have the staff contribution closer to 10,000 trees.”
Since the Million Tree Challenge launch in 2011, more than 500 trees have already been planted at LHSC and St. Joeseph’s.
