Are you finding that sustainability guidelines and codes a bit overwhelming?  Need some clarity regarding specifics impacting healthcare?  This presentation shall review and compare current guidelines, rating systems, codes and standards; such as Green Globes® CIEB for Health Care, LEED®-HC, 2014 Guidelines for Design and Construction for Health Care Facilities®, the Senior Living Sustainability Guide®, ASHRAE 189.2 Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable High Performance Health Care Facilities, and the International Green Code.  
The goal of the presentation is to discuss the basics of guidelines, as well as standards and codes that will impact the design, construction, and commissioning of health care environments.   Adoption of sustainability codes is happening every day on a state by state basis; often left to local jurisdictions for enforcement.   Attend this session to be prepared for the “green” requirements that are going to impact the healthcare marketplace in addition to changes in reimbursements, length of stays, and care needs of an aging population. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the unique challenges in developing the first Native American Medical Center. 
  • The design approach and challenges for this unique healthcare facility.
  • Address the cultural goals of the Chickasaw Tribal Art Program.
