To receive your California Mercury Elimination Leadership Program Certificate of Appreciation and Banner, submit the HELP MERCURY TOTALS one page Excel spreadsheet and the Hospital Certification Form to your local county government HELP representative.  Hospitals that are built mercury-free only submit the “Built Mercury-Free” Hospital Certification Form.  If you need assistance locating your government representative, contact Mary Kathleen Pride at mkpride@dtsc.ca.gov.

Upon your request, the Department of Toxic Substances Control also nominates your hospital to receive the Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) "Making Medicine Mercury-Free Award."
