Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
The Robert B. Green Campus has been awarded the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Gold Certification for its environmentally friendly design and construction.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized rating system that provides third-party verification of green buildings. Those ratings are based on factors such as sustainability, water and energy efficiency, materials use and indoor air quality.
University Health System is seeking LEED Gold Certification at its new Sky Tower at University Hospital opening April 14, 2014.
LEED-certified buildings are designed to:
Lower operating costs and increase asset value
Reduce waste sent to landfills
Conserve energy and water
Be healthier and safer for occupants
Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities
The Capital Improvement Program also includes SaludArte, a Design Enhancement Public Art project, offering patients, visitors and staff the opportunity to find beautiful and peaceful spaces to uplift the spirit and provide positive distractions during stressful times.
Recognizing the role and vitality the cultural arts play in the life and community of Bexar County and San Antonio, the vision of the SaludArte program is to use Art to inspire healing, compassion, hope and trust. Reflect the community, improve the experience and promote the mission of University Health System through art and design enhancement while being good stewards of our financial and natural resources.
