Sustainability and environmental stewardship are integral to the mission of Northwell Health. In April of 2010, Northwell Health entered into a comprehensive memorandum of understanding with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlining our commitment to sustainability.
Members of the Physical Assets team were instrumental in drafting this groundbreaking document and the team continues to be in the forefront of the effort to realize the goals set forth.
Many of our projects have been submitted for certification through the US Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED rating systems. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the world’s leading green building certification system. To date, we have been successful in certifying 16 projects throughout the system, encompassing over 170,000 square feet of space. Two of these projects have been awarded the highest level of achievement available, LEED Platinum. The 3rd and the 4th floors of the Katz Women’s Hospital at Northwell Health stand out as two of only five in-patient hospital projects in the world to achieve LEED Platinum. These distinctions were instrumental in helping Northshore University Hospital in Manhasset to be designated as one of the 50 greenest hospitals in the US by Becker’s Hospital Review.
Additionally, Physical Assets seeks to identify and implement energy and water efficiency measures whenever and wherever possible. Through these ongoing efforts, Physical Assets has helped the system reduce its overall energy use by nearly 10% over the last four years.
