Baptist Health goes green with new Miami hospital

Miami Herald, September 9, 2008

After years of delays, a groundbreaking is finally scheduled for West Kendall Baptist Hospital in Miami. Executives aim to make the hospital the highest-tech and greenest facility in South Florida. The $160 million facility will include a medical office building and four-story, 80-bed hospital. Peter Goicouria of MGE Architects, the Coral Gables firm that designed the facility, said it's intended to be the first certified green hospital in South Florida. The facility's design aims to stay green by incorporating features such as those to reduce the consumption of electric power and limit water usage.
