St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center has developed this plan for expansion with a responsibility for meeting the needs of our patients and community at top of mind. But as we begin construction, we recognize our responsibilities with regard to the environment as well. That's why we're making our project one of the largest green healthcare construction projects in New York state.
The plan includes a green roof, green data center, solar panels, daylighting views, energy conserving systems, greenway park, site drainage, and underground water and storm water infrastructure. All of these features are aimed at maximizing the sustainability of the new St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center and ensuring that every impact we have on future generations is a positive one.
From the earliest stages of design, St. Joseph's has worked to ensure that the expansion will help make our facilities as green as possible. With this mindset, the plan features a number of green attributes aimed at energy savings, waste reduction and a smaller carbon footprint.
- Solar power
- Green roof
- Green data center
- Energy-conserving systems
- Greenway park
- Site drainage
- Underground water and storm water infrastructure
These features will help reduce energy consumption by 3,040,905 kilowatt hours per year, and 18,000 btu per year, and reduce water consumption by 786,500 gallons per year. Additionally, St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center will reduce its carbon output by an estimated 2,187 metric tons per year.
