Green Building: What it Means

Click for Larger Image

The Ruth and Raymond Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine represents much more than a new building: It is a new idea. It is the home to patient-centered care provided by the highest caliber of physicians and nurses using the most advanced treatment options. In addition, it is an environmentally conscientious and healthy place to visit and work.

As one of the largest academic medical centers in the country, Penn is at the forefront of medicine. Providing a healthy environment for its patients, staff, visitors, and the surrounding community is a vital part of its mission.

The Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine meets the highest performance standards for health care excellence. It is one of the first health care facilities in the Philadelphia region constructed using Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines, developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
