After developing the Green Hospice Philosophy and the Shades of Green Program in 2008 with the intention of addressing the sustainability of the planet, people and profit, related to hospice and healthcare, Camille is now working in collaboration with colleagues and healthcare experts in creating a certification program for hospice and healthcare organizations which addresses a re-thinking and innovation of best practices in support of staff and patients through responsible leadership, management, and business development. This program will be available to the public in 2013 as part of what Camille sees as the future of sustainability in healthcare while considering the imminent growth in our aging population and shrinking healthcare workforce.
