Air pollution in our nation’s cities and communities contributes to respiratory diseases (including asthma and changes in lung function), cardiovascular diseases, adverse pregnancy outcomes (such as preterm birth), and even death, and is carcinogenic to humans.1 About 3 of every 4 of the 8 million barrels imported daily into our country is used by the transportation sector2, largely single passenger vehicles and light duty trucks found daily in employer parking lots and back docks.
With the transition from internal combustion to electric engine technologies, and as major community employers, hospitals and health systems are in a position to reduce the environmental and community health impacts of hospital-related transportation. Building an infrastructure of EV charging stations at employer workplaces can serve to reduce the amount of petroleum used for transportation and support and improve community health.
Among strategies to reduce the public health impacts of current transportation practices is the installation of public, employee, and fleet vehicle EV Charging stations. This sharing call will provide an overview of available assessment, procurement, installation, and general best practice resources. Gather your Facilities, Community Benefit, HR, Supply Chain, and Finance colleagues and hear from Practice Greenhealth members about their experience and perspectives on assessment, planning, installing and maintaining EV charging stations on their campuses.
- Understand the health impacts of air pollution from hospital-related transportation sources and review transportation strategies to improve community health outcomes, including the installation of EV charging stations.
- Review DOE EV Workplace Charging program and resources.
- Learn Success Stories from Advocate Health.
