At AAR Hospital, we recognize the importance of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles in healthcare. We are dedicated to not only providing high-quality medical care but also contributing to a more sustainable and equitable future for our country and the planet. Here are some of the initiatives we have undertaken to align with ESG values:

  • Environmental Stewardship

  • Social Responsibility

  • Governance and Ethics

Environmental Stewardship:

Energy Efficiency: We have implemented energy-efficient technologies and practices throughout our facilities to reduce our carbon footprint and energy consumption. Approximately 31% of the hospital's energy consumption is derived from solar sources, a testament to our commitment to sustainable energy practices. Our ESG team remains steadfast in their pursuit of opportunities to diminish our dependence on non-renewable energy sources.

Waste Reduction: AAR Hospital actively promotes waste reduction, recycling, and responsible disposal of medical waste to minimize environmental impact. The Hospital recycles its wastewater through a treatment process, to use it for gardening and cleaning the walkways and parking lots.

Green Building Design: Our new construction projects adhere to green building standards, incorporating sustainable materials and energy-efficient designs. We are proud to share that we are EDGE certified.

Transportation Alternatives: We encourage staff and visitors to use eco-friendly transportation options and provide bicycle racks and electric vehicle charging stations.

Social Responsibility:

Community Outreach: We are deeply committed to our local community, offering various outreach programs, health education, and free clinics to ensure healthcare accessibility for all.

Diversity and Inclusion: AAR Hospital fosters a diverse and inclusive work environment, valuing the unique perspectives and backgrounds of our staff and patients.

Ethical Sourcing: We prioritize ethical sourcing of medical supplies and products to ensure the well-being of workers and fair-trade practices.

Transparent Governance: AAR Hospital maintains a strong governance structure, emphasizing transparency, accountability, and adherence to ethical standards.

Compliance and Ethics Programs: We have established robust compliance and ethics programs to ensure that our operations adhere to legal and ethical guidelines.

Patient Privacy: We prioritize the confidentiality and privacy of patient information, complying with all healthcare data security regulations.

We understand that healthcare institutions play a vital role in promoting ESG values, and we are dedicated to continuously improving our ESG efforts. By aligning our operations with these principles, we aim to not only provide exceptional medical care but also contribute to a sustainable and socially responsible future for all.
