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% of post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled materials, and a waste management and recycling program that will reduce at least 75% 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.

To meet the growing needs of the community, a state of the art surgical center and outpatient services center was built for the patient's convenience.
