Boriken’s new building was built and is operated without the commonly used chemicals and materials that are harmful to people. In order to accomplish this, we follow and exceed 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.
