    The University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington is among the "50 greenest hospitals in America."

    The medical center says it was selected for the list by Becker's Hospital Review, an industry journal.

    Among the UVM Medical Center's efforts that were noted included efforts to reduce energy consumption, chemical use and the waste stream, as well as committing itself to energy efficient construction standards and serving healthy and locally produced foods.

    Facilities Management Director Wes Pooler says it's the result of taking small steps to be the most environmentally responsible organization possible.
