Our Commitment to the Environment

What is LEED Certification?

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system that was developed and is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a Washington D.C.-based, nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders. The rating system is designed to promote design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing the negative environmental impacts of buildings and improving occupant health and well-being.

In 2011, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital was awarded GOLD certification by the US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program for meeting the highest standards in environmentally sound building practices. The new building, which houses all of the Hospital’s clinical services, opened in June 2010. The award made our hospital the highest LEED rated hospital in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at the time and only the 9th hospital in the country to receive this rating.
