The Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, new home of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, neurosciences programs and stem cell research,  has received LEED Gold certification, established by the U.S. Green Building Council, for its highly sustainable, energy-efficient design, construction and operation, according to an article on the Medical Construction & Design magazine website.

The design minimizes the impact on the environment by meeting or exceeding five elements of sustainability, including energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, water efficiency, indoor environment quality and overall sustainability.

“As a model for 21st century healthcare, the Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion brings outpatient care and translational research together under one roo,. Becoming a LEED-certified facility further exemplifies Cedars-Sinai’s commitment to providing excellent patient-centered care while utilizing the latest technology and scientific discoveries that can be applied directly to patients,” said Larry Colvin, Cedars-Sinai vice president of facilities, planning, design and construction, in the article. 

The exterior of the pavilion features a double-facade, high-performance glass skin that reduces heat gain and glare while providing a comfortable interior environment. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the Hollywood Hills and provide natural light. Automated building control systems regulate the building’s energy use, the article said. Solar panels on the rooftop of parking lots provide power to the parking garage.

The pavilion serves 500-600 patients each day and houses outpatient services for the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, neurosciences, Regenerative Medicine Institute and other clinical specialties, as well as outpatient procedure suites.
