Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital has earned the distinction of being the first ground-up-built hospital in Northern California to attain LEED Gold certification.
 
“Gold” is the second-highest of four levels of certification under the U.S Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating systems.
 
“The new hospital incorporates sustainable building strategies from the ground up to comply with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design criteria,” according to Creed Kampa, Lead Project Designer with HGA, an integrated architecture, engineering and master planning firm. “LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system used to transform the built environment to sustainability using a 100-point checklist.”
 
Sutter Hospital was awarded LEED Gold certification in recognition of the building’s energy-saving features and “green” construction.
