Building Well

Building Green To Provide Optimal Healing Environments

University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center

The majority of people’s lives are spent indoors. To promote well-being in our facilities, we are incorporating environmental considerations into building design, construction, and renovation projects.

All new University Hospitals buildings and major renovations are incorporating design and construction strategies of third-party best-practice guides such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification System, the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Performance Rating, and Healthcare Without Harm’s Green Guide for HealthCare.

University Hospitals Seidman Medical Center

Our Vision 2010 construction projects incorporated sustainable design strategies. The U.S. Green Building Council awarded University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center a LEED New Construction 2009 (NCv2009) Silver certification – making the new hospital the first health care facility in the country to receive NCv2009 certification. UH Seidman Cancer Center anticipates LEED Certification as well.
