New Building

The Health Center of the Future

Boriken Health Center is committed to building its new primary care facility as the prototype Green health center in New York City. We understand that building and operating a health care facility with environmental hazards can create a structure that makes people sick, instead of curing them.

Borikenís new building will avoid using chemicals and materials that are harmful to people but used in construction . In order to accomplish this, we have adopted a goal of following and exceeding the U.S. Green Building Council Guidelines for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Patient care which is free of environmental hazards is essential to the healing process. This kind of care is particularly important now when the environment is becoming the number one issue governing our day-to-day lives because of climate change predictions and ever-increasing awareness of the importance of indoor and outdoor environments.

The Health Center will feature cleaner air, efficient systems to reduce power consumption, less waste and less toxic cleaning products, low or non-VOC (Volitile Orgainic Compounds) emitting materials, more recycling and pure water filtration systems.

In addition to being environmentally sound, the five story building will provide the community of East Harlem a new asthma treatment center, an urgent care facility, and child care services for parents who access care at the Health Center.

At Boriken, we are proud to be working with the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology to create the health center of the future.
