SESSION I:
CURING THE “GREEN” WAY: STORIES OF SUSTAINABLE HEALTHCARE FACILITIES

Scope: Currently, there are only a select number of case studies of healthcare facilities that are being built “green.” This session sets the stage for further discussion by examining two case studies in order to understand the decision-making process involved, the research data to support the case, and the health outcomes (if monitored).
