First Ever LEED for Heathcare Project Certified
Group Health Puyallup Medical Center gets Gold
The Group Health Puyallup Medical Center, a newly opened 53,000-sq. ft., two-story medical facility in Puyallup, Wash, is the first project in the country to achieve certification under the new Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Healthcare rating system.
Although medical buildings have previously been certified under LEED, the new LEED for Healthcare (LEED-HC) rating system was developed to better fit these unique building types. The new rating system comes with a new credits and prerequisites that address the many ways that healthcare facilities impact human health and the environment.
