Protecting the Planet and Your Health
At Metro Health, our commitment to sustainability goes beyond the innovative design features of our hospital. It’s evident in our day-to-day business practices and ongoing strategies to conserve natural resources and promote a healthy environment.
As a leader in sustainable health care, Metro Health continues to take steps to provide a healthier environment for our patients and community. Some of our sustainability initiatives include: Metro Health Hospital’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification; a strong focus on storm water management, recycling and energy conservation; the 48,500 square foot green roof at our hospital which is not only pleasing to look at, but absorbs water and provides great insulation; an extensive sustainable food program that helps provide healthy alternatives for our patients; weekly farm markets throughout the summer; and much more.
