Building for the Future: LEED® and WELL™ Certifications in Construction | 01.04.2023 BENEATH THE HARD HAT®

LEED® and WELL™ Certifications + Healthcare Construction: Imagine a place where patients recover faster, staff are less stressed, and infection rates plummet. Studies have shown that by optimizing factors like air quality, lighting, and acoustics, WELL-certified healthcare facilities can achieve just that. WELL buildings create environments that promote healing and reduce stress. This translates to shorter stays, lower readmission rates, and improved patient satisfaction – all of which contribute to a healthier bottom line.
