SFSA is LEED certified! We are the 1ST PLATINUM LEED certified surgical office in the nation.
We are so excited to be the first to accomplish this monumental challenge. It is possible to be “surgically green” while providing the highest quality care. SFSA is now on par with the other companies much larger who are also Platinum LEED certified: Adobe, Cisco and even the California Academy of Sciences.
“LEED” or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is an internationally-recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000… “ *U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) website: http://www.usgbs.org
The LEED program promotes efficiency and environmental conciseness by monitoring several aspects during building and operation. Among these are the following: • Sustainable Sites – helps to develop buildings with minimal impact on the eco-system • Water Efficiency – inspires smarter and more efficient use of water • Energy & Atmosphere – rewards the use of renewable and clean energy sources • Materials & Resources – encourages waste reduction and the use of recycled materials • Indoor Environmental Quality – applauds the use of natural day light and quality air.
So how were we able to accomplish this: by using recycled products in the construction of the office, use of LED lighting, solar keyboard, paperless electronic medical record, Energy star computers and appliances, low-flow faucets and toilets….and the list goes on.
