The article presents several visions and goals from leaders of the healthcare industry on why should the industry bother about the sustainability journey of organizations in the U.S. For the chief executive officer of St. Mary's, the organization's explicit stewardship mission lies at the core of its decision making. According to Gary Cohen, hospitals can situate themselves within the ecology of their communities and act as a force for healing. Moreover, Michael Pollan states that healthcare providers have begun to heal the split between what they believe and what they do, to commingle their identities as consumers, industries, and citizens.
