Program Overview

Centennial College’s Healthcare Environmental Services Management program was designed to meet the demand for qualified environmental services managers with the ability to develop systems and processes to protect workers, clients and patients from environmental hazards present in the healthcare setting and operate buildings that are safe. Curriculum includes concepts of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and going “Green” for a healthier environment and to reduce pollution and carbon footprint. We also research the use of effective eco-friendly products with lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).

The students will be informed of the wide range of environmental issues healthcare facilities are encountering currently to comply with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC), Health Canada, Occupational Health and Safety, Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) and other regulatory requirements.

Today’s healthcare environment is changing and there is an increased need for infection control measures, outbreak or pandemic planning, isolation cleaning levels and emergency preparedness and response in the healthcare setting. You will learn to develop, implement and monitor operating systems in the housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, and transportation areas within the environmental department of a healthcare facility and the emergence of new technologies to fight antibiotic-resistant “Superbugs” and to help support disease control of bacteria and viruses.

To help you to acquire the necessary skills, the Healthcare Environmental Services Management program will expose you to the industry’s best practices and continuous quality improvement to coordinate and monitor building, sanitation, maintenance and operating systems. Through this School of Community and Health Studies program, you will combine healthcare environmental service knowledge with business and human relations, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. This combination will prepare you to work with a diverse team in this challenging field.
