The Center for Health Design is a nonprofit research and advocacy organization whose mission is to transform healthcare settings into healing environments that improve outcomes through the creative use of evidence-based design. We envision a future where healing environments are recognized as a vital part of therapeutic treatment and where the design of healthcare settings contributes to health and does not add to the burden of stress.

Health Care Without Harm is an international coalition of 440 groups in 55 countries working to transform the healthcare industry so that it is ecologically sustainable and no longer a source of harm to people and the environment. Since 1996, HCWH has been at the forefront of efforts to shift the healthcare sector toward safer, healthier products and practices. Major successes include: virtually eliminating the market for mercury fever thermometers in the United States; reducing the number of polluting medical waste incinerators in the United States from 5,000 in the mid-1990s to less than 100 today; shifting the medical-device market away from DEHP-containing PVC plastic; implementing the first green building system for hospitals, the Green Guide for Health Care; and working with hospitals to build markets for locally grown, sustainable healthy food.
