Inova Fairfax Hospital | 50 of the Greenest Hospitals in America 2015

Inova Fairfax Hospital (Falls Church, Va.). The medical and surgical tower built on Inova Fairfax Hospital's campus in 2013 was the first building in Inova's history to be designed and constructed based on LEED criteria established by the USGBC. The LEED Silver-certified tower incorporates high-efficiency heating, cooling and electrical systems and features environmentally friendly building materials, a 4,000-square-foot rooftop garden and a cistern that collects rainwater to reduce stormwater runoff. Since the construction of the tower in 2013, Inova announced it would seek LEED certification for all aspects of its expansion project on the Inova Fairfax medical campus. In addition to its green building efforts, Inova Fairfax Hospital participates in all six HHI Challenges.
