Services at a Glance
A Green Hospital
Foothills Hospital was constructed as a “green” facility. It was the first hospital in the U.S. to earn the prestigious LEED certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a national green building program that is fostering the development of high performance, sustainable buildings.
In planning the hospital, air quality and resource and energy efficiency were given high priority. A highly efficient power plant was built to provide heat, lighting and hot water for the campus. Lighting with compact fluorescent bulbs adds to energy savings as does painting the roof white to reflect summer heat and reduce air conditioning demand.
Outdoor lighting was carefully designed to reduce light pollution in the night sky. To conserve water, drought tolerant plantings and other xeriscaping surround the area.
The northern section of this undeveloped area is part of a wildlife corridor and includes a wetlands area that is not impacted by the hospital.
