We recently received notification that our Norwood Campus has achieved LEED Certification.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the U.S. Green Building Council’s green certification system for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of sustainable buildings. The benefits of LEED include conserving energy, reducing water consumption, improving air quality, and saving money.
When we began planning our building, our goal was to create a cutting-edge, high performance facility to support our physicians, staff and patients; receiving LEED certification validates our approach while reflecting the thoughtful strategy and hard work that went into creating it.

Our investment in green building and sustainability reflects our commitment to healthier lives for our staff, patients and community, as well as a better environment through the wise use of resources.
Special thanks to GBBN Architects, our partners throughout the process.
