A Little Goes a Long Way

A Little Goes a Long Way

Sustainability is a driving force behind the hospital expansion project, which incorporates water-efficient systems, a 110,000-gallon cistern to store rainwater, and the use of drought-tolerant plants, such as native grasses, shrubs and trees. The new expanses of green space and permeable paving will handle storm runoff better than paved areas.

Outside of the building, rainwater, wastewater and condensate water—the liquid formed by dehumidifying indoor air—will be harvested to meet 100 percent of the irrigation needs for all of our new landscaping—saving more than 684,000 gallons of H2O per year.

Inside of the expanded hospital, water-efficient bathroom fixtures and fittings will reduce potable water usage by 30 percent compared to other hospitals of similar size.
