5 © 2008 GGHC The design and operation of health care buildings is highly regulated with intense economic and life safety oversight Health care facilities are often multiple building campuses of varying ages, conditions, systems 24/7 operations with patients in place require intensive coordination and redundancy of all services at all times. Long ownership mean owners realize life cycle implications of their construction choices overview design attributes Operational issues, such as mercury elimination, have defined industrys environmental stewardship 5

6 © 2008 GGHC Construction frequently occurs within or adjacent to occupied buildings (where health is fragile, or steadiness of hand required) overview construction attributes Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) protocols to minimize the impacts of construction on occupants demonstrate leadership to the wider sustainable building industry Healthcare construction managers can evolve a rigorous, sustainable set of practices for the healthcare industry that may inform wider construction practice

7 © 2008 GGHC 1998 American Hospital Association & U.S. EPA Memorandum of Understanding 1 Virtual elimination of mercury- containing waste from healthcare facilities waste streams by 2005; 2 Reduce total waste volume by 33% by 2005, and by 50% by 2010; 3 Identify hazardous substances for pollution prevention and waste reduction opportunities, including hazardous chemicals & persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic pollutants.

8 © 2008 GGHC Hospitals for a Healthy Environment (H2E) (now forming part of Practice Greenhealth) Founded in 1998, H2E is a voluntary program that educates health care professionals about pollution prevention opportunities in hospitals & healthcare systems, noting environmental & public health benefits in addition to reducing costs associated with waste disposal. Successes to Date 97% of hospitals have implemented mercury reduction/ elimination programs 72% of hospitals have inventoried and replaced mercury- containing devices 80% of hospitals have implemented a waste reduction policy for all waste types source: 2005 AHA/H2E Survey (Note: percentages refer to survey respondents)

19 © 2008 GGHC LEED for Healthcare Mission Statement LEED for Healthcare supports sustainable planning, design, and construction of healthcare facilities by adapting the U.S. Green Building Councils LEED® to respond to the unique set of opportunities and challenges presented by the healthcare sector. By affirming healthcares fundamental mission of …first, do no harm, LEED for Healthcare recognizes the profound impact of the built environment on the health of occupants, local communities, and global ecology and encourages design strategies that enhance the healing environment for patients, healthy and productive work environments for staff, and responsible ecological stewardship.

20 © 2008 GGHC USGBC-GGHC Memorandum of Understanding September 2007 Work together on tools, educational programs and other activities to support green health care building. Jointly develop health care-related resource materials, education and training events Jointly identify a prioritized research agenda Continue to collaborate on developing future health care-related green building tools
