LEED for Healthcare

LEED for healthcare covers a wide range of needs in the healthcare market. These include licensed outpatient care facilities, inpatient care facilities, and licensed long term facilities. The LEED Healthcare Green Building Rating System was developed precisely with such services in mind. LEED for Healthcare can also be extended to assisted living facilities, medical offices and medical education and research centers. Issues like traveling long distance from parking facilities, access to natural spaces and greater sensitivity to pollutants and chemicals are also addressed.

The rating system is the outcome of a close four–year collaborative effort between USGBC and the Green Guide for Healthcare (GGHC). At the outset the President of USGBC observed that the healthcare industry was one of the most important sectors that could benefit from the practice of green building design and construction. The primary goal of the collaboration was to foster best practices and to ensure the healthcare industry has the tools and resources required to build green. Green hospitals require less water and energy have a lesser environmental impact and are healthier for doctors, nurses and patients. Further, green hospitals seek to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals so as to provide a healthier environment.

The publication entitled the "Green Guide for Health Care" is the first quantifiable, sustainable toolkit of the healthcare sector. It incorporates improved environmental and health principles and practices into design, planning, construction, operations and maintenance of healthcare facilities. The publication is a joint venture of the Center for the Maximum Potential Building Systems and Health Care Without Harm.

While the definitions of the various types of health care vary depending on the different cultural, political, organizational and disciplinary perspectives, there appears to be some consensus that primary care constitutes the first element of a continuing health care process, that may also include the provision of secondary and tertiary levels of care. Thanks.
