Green building and health care
Healthcare is an ever-evolving industry; from the tools and technology that specialists, doctors and nurses rely on and the role of hospital design in providing comfort and care, to the sustainable building practices that reduce facility costs. Keeping informed of these trends is now more important than ever as 2013 brings more changes to health care and hospitals as directed by the Affordable Care Act.
This panel discussion will be led by Skanska's Elizabeth Heider, immediate past chair of the U.S. Green Building Council, and will explore green building and human health trends.
Additional panelists include: Monica Green, principal of Westlake Reed Leskosky; Matthew Pietro, sustainability specialist of University Hospitals Health System; Chris Parkinson, interim director of Cleveland Clinic's Office for a Healthy Environment; and Andrew Quirk, senior vice president / national director of Skanska's Healthcare Center of Excellence.
