Dell Children’s Medical Center Tour

Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas is proud to be the first hospital in the world to earn platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for outstanding Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). This designation means that they have exceeded environmental standards in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, selection of materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

When Dell Children’s Medical Center broke ground on the Robert Mueller Development site in 2004, the Seton Family of Hospitals had a vision of creating a “green” hospital that would set new standards. Over the last several years, world-renowned medical professionals, architects, environmentalists and elected officials have toured Dell Children’s to learn what it takes to build and operate a LEED certified hospital. HFSE attendees will get the same chance during this tour.
