With a design inspired by the nearby Green Timbers forest, the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre (JPOCSC) in Surrey instantly transports patients entering the building to a place where healing and the environment co-exist.
Recycling at home is simple, or at least that’s what our kids tell us. In healthcare we aim to follow the same steps as at home, but as quality of patient care is our priority, we don’t always have time.
The Lower Mainland Recycling Renewal project is the first of its kind for BC health authorities. Previous recycling efforts at most of our hospitals have been uncoordinated and largely lacked appropriate support.
All new Lower Mainland health authority buildings are designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard as per the BC government’s Energy Efficient Buildings Strategy.
The recycling team aims to implement the recycling renewal program at 7 acute care sites per year, until all acute care sites across the Lower Mainland Health Authorities have the Recycling Renewal program.
