As a result of the design and construction techniques of the new Health
Center 4 Building, it is anticipated to receive a Silver or Gold LEED
Certification of Achievement, which usually takes a year or so after
construction completion and occupancy.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building
Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design,
construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings.
To reduce the environmental impact associated with traditional building
construction, Health Center 4 will incorporate a number of green
initiatives. A few of these include using over 30 percent of
post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled materials, and a waste
management and recycling program that will reduce at least 75 percent of
the construction waste that would otherwise enter landfills. Inside the
facility, interior finishes have been carefully selected to contain low
to no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to create a healthy indoor
environment and reduce allergy triggers. Also, a green housekeeping
program will be implemented using environmentally friendly cleaning
products and practices.
Why did Riddle build Health Center 4?

center and outpatient services center was built for the patient's
convenience. Now, Riddle can better serve our patients with a convenient
and technologically advanced outpatient surgery center, along with other
outpatient programs and physician offices.
