Leading the Way
Holistic approach to health & wellbeing from the built environment to care and support is at the very heart of Ranfurly Hospital. There are many wonderful initiatives in place at Ranfurly Hospital and the culture embraces the principles of sustainability.
Over 100 years of heritage combined with modern aged care facilities, the Ranfurly Hospital offers something truly special for both its residents and its team. From innovative applications of therapies and technology in care, beautiful nutritious meals made from scratch by our kitchen team, the many lovely community groups and regular events hosted to staff wellbeing initiatives to name just a few. One is clear, it is our people, who truly make the difference.
As part of the sustainability programme we have identified key challenges and opportunities in the care setting. One of the focus areas will be Waste.. We are in process of developing programmes to facilitate further waste separation and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. This will include piloting organic waste bins in the kitchen, plus ongoing education and supporting initiatives.
We also wish to encourage our residents, team members, whanau, visitors, suppliers and the wider community to be part of the journey. We can all make better choices that will help reduce our impact.
