Thanks to its expansion project, Community Hospital South is healthy not just for patients, but for the planet as well. Many materials used in the project—including the floors, ceiling tiles and recycled furniture upholstery—are rapidly renewable and earth sustainable products.
These green elements of the construction and renovation project promote a healing environment for patients and visitors, with better air quality, greater energy efficiency and reduced day-to-day costs.
- Cutting-edge technology such as LED lighting add more green elements. LED lighting offers 20 percent greater efficiency than fluorescent lighting, and it nearly 70 percent more efficient than traditional incandescent lighting.
- The landscaping is carefully planned with selections that are compatible with the soil and weather conditions in central Indiana, in a practice known as xeriscaping.
- Community Hospital South employees outfitted in eco-friendly uniforms made of recycled plastic bottles.
Community Hospital South is committed to efforts which improve and maintain an environmentally friendly and sustainable campus.
