The USGBC Launches new LEED for Healthcare

Last week, the USGBC debuted the new LEED for Healthcare rating system at the CleanMed conference in Pheonix, Arizona. The new rating system focuses on the specific needs for 24 hour medical facilities, their equipment and most importantly - the patients. LEED for Healthcare makes the direct connection between public health and sustainability. “Research has shown that when we are treated and heal in a green healthcare facility – one that has a healthy indoor environmental quality and connects us to the outdoors – we heal faster, have shorter hospital stays and fewer return visits,” said Scot Horst, Senior Vice President of LEED, USGBC.
