The bi-monthly magazine has a qualified subscriber base of more than 50,000 healthcare executives and supply chain management decision makers, making it the third largest publication in the healthcare field.
EverGreen will make its debut on May 20, 2008 at CleanMed 2008, the premier environmental conference for leaders in healthcare. The first issue will lead with the cover story "Greening Healthcare" and contain standing features on green building, waste reduction, healthy chemical policies, sustainable foods and food processes, clean air, energy and water efficiency, and more. The "Green Light" section of each issue will profile the environmental initiatives of a health system, hospital or healthcare facility, and "Green Support" will feature a guest environmental columnist. The magazine's "Revive" section will focus on healthcare recycling efforts, and the “Focus on Chemicals” section will look at the impact of chemical use in the healthcare industry. "Policy Watch" will provide updates on regulatory guidelines surrounding environmental issues on a local, state and national level.
