During Dr. Thompson’s tenure, Gundersen Health System developed an energy programme that decreased greenhouse gases by 95% and hazardous pharmaceutical waste by 1,700% -  therefore decreasing the cost of care and improving the local economy. Gundersen has been recognized across the US by independent healthcare ratings organisations for high-quality patient care, earning the highest honors of Healthgrades America’s 50 Best AwardTM for 2012 through 2016.

In 2015 Dr. Thompson received the Practice Green Health Visionary Leader Award, after Gundersen achieved energy independence and became the first net-zero energy health system in the United States. The only US healthcare provider to speak in the Blue Zone of the Paris Climate talks, Dr. Thompson also received the White House Champions of Change award in 2013.

Dr. Thompson will take to the CleanMed Europe stage on 10 October and will reflect on partnerships and solutions for sustainable healthcare in his keynote address. He will also be available throughout the conference to discuss his recent book about values-based leadership within business and healthcare: Lead True: Live Your Values, Build Your People, Inspire Your Community.

More details will continue to be released over the coming weeks, so make sure you’re signed up to receive CleanMed Europe updates so you don’t miss out!
