Hospitals require the highest and healthiest indoor air quality, the lowest levels of toxicities, the greatest access to daylight and outdoor views for patients, and the most efficient energy and water usage, all of which can be attained by adopting green methods.
Green Hospitals are leading the way by providing patients, their families, doctors, nurses, technicians, and office staff with exceptionally safe patient care and the ultimate sustainable experience. These institutions use eco-friendly construction and energy conservation material for a brighter and healthier environment that helps patients heal faster.
According to USGBC, there are serious concerns that patients and staff might sustain long-term harm resulting from toxic materials used in the very environments that are meant to be therapeutic. The initial cost of building a green hospital would soon be overrode by the reduced energy bills, improved life-cycle costs and increased service quality.
