LEED 2009 for Healthcare
The LEED for Healthcare rating system represents a
culmination of seven years of close collaboration
between the Green Guide for Healthcare (GGHC) and
USGBC. GGHC has helped to streamline the LEED for
Healthcare's development schedule by aligning with
the LEED for New Construction rating system's
organizational structure
The GGHC is the first voluntary, self-certifying toolkit
of green building best practices customized for the
healthcare sector
When to Use LEED 2009 for Healthcare
 LEED for Healthcare was written
primarily for inpatient and
outpatient care facilities and
licensed long term care facilities.
 The rating system may also be
used for medical offices, assisted
living facilities and medical
education and research centers
 LEED for Healthcare addresses
design and construction
activities for both new buildings
and major renovations of
existing buildings
LEED for Healthcare Certification Levels
 Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) will
recognize buildings that achieve one of these rating levels
with a formal letter of certification.

Power Supply
Many discreet components create a larger
environmental impact
Reader Interface

 Additional wiring, energy use, more
processing and packaging
Wiegand Card
Electric Strike
Integrated Access Control
 Integrating all of these functions into
a single integrated lockset reduces
the number of manufactured
components required at each door
IP-Enabled Access Control
 IP-Enabled WiFi locks leverage existing
infrastructure to reduce environmental
impact even further
 Completely eliminates any additional
electronic access control infrastructure
IP-Enabled Access Control
Power over Ethernet
 Power over Ethernet locks leverage existing
PoE infrastructure to reduce components AND
minimize energy usage
 PoE locks use a maximum of 7W per activation at
each lock, 50% less than typical PoE installations
 PoE locks also use 85% less standby power than
traditional access control
An Energy Efficient Building
 Optimize energy performance: entire building
 Create a sealed barrier: prevent air infiltration, heat transfer
 Each security component should be carefully selected
− Thermal Break frames and Kerf frames
− Insulated doors
− Door hardware, EAC systems, power supplies
− Gasketing
 BIM: performance characteristics of door assemblies
 Following this strategy, doorways can be used to create a
more energy efficient building

occupancy using testing protocols consistent with the EPA Compendium
of Methods for the Determination of Air Pollutants in Indoor Air and as
additionally detailed in the LEED Reference Guide for Green Building
Design and Construction, 2009 Edition Healthcare Supplement.
 Project teams specifying all interior products meeting GREENGUARD
Children & Schools testing will assist with IEQ 3.2 compliance.
IEQ Credit 4 – Low-Emitting Materials

and occupants.
 One point (maximum four) can be achieved for each group of
materials that comply with the requirements.
 GROUP 1: Interior Adhesives and Sealants
 GROUP 2: Wall and Ceiling Finishes
 GROUP 3: Flooring
 GROUP 4: Composite Wood, Agrifiber and Batt Insulation Products
 GROUP 5: Exterior Applied Products
Group 1 – Interior Adhesives & Sealants
 This credit only applies to materials applied within the
weatherproofing system however, pre-finished doors and preinstalled glazing will allow LEED projects to avoid applying
materials onsite.
Example: Integrated Door Opening Assembly
Group 2 – Wall & Ceiling Finishes
 All gypsum board, acoustical ceiling systems and wall
coverings (doors) installed in the building interior must meet
the testing and product requirements of the California
Department of Health Services Standard Practice for the
Testing of Volatile Organic Emissions from Various Sources
Using Small-Scale Environmental Chambers, including 2004
Addenda (CA 01350).
 Recommend GREENGUARD Indoor
Air Quality certification (or similar)
for Door Opening Solutions
Group 4 – Composite Wood, Agrifiber
 Composite wood and agrifiber
products used on the interior of the
building (i.e., inside the
weatherproofing system) shall contain
no added urea-formaldehyde
(NAUF) resins.
 Composite wood and agrifiber
products are defined as particleboard,
medium density fiberboard (MDF),
plywood, wheat board, strawboard,
panel substrates and door cores.
 Specify wood doors containing NAUF
IEQ Credit 5 – Indoor Chemical &
Pollutant Source Control
 Minimize building occupant exposure to
potentially hazardous particulates and chemical
 Where hazardous gases or chemicals may be
present or used—garages, soiled utility areas,
sterilization and disinfection areas,
housekeeping/laundry areas and
copying/printing rooms—
 exhaust each space sufficiently to create
negative pressure with respect to adjacent
spaces with the doors to the room closed.
 For each of these spaces, specify closers on all
door openings to provide self-closing doors.
Example: Stile and Rail Door with Gasketing and EAC
IEQ Credit 8.1/.2 – Daylight & Views
 Provide building occupants a
connection to the outdoors through
the introduction of daylight and
views into the regularly occupied
areas of the building.
 Adding glazing, toplights and
sidelights to door openings will
assist healthcare projects in
achieving this LEED credit.
Example: Split Leaf Thermal Fused Door with Privacy Sidelight
Special Healthcare Applications

 Help hospital leadership implement,
expand, or improve their JCAHOrequired program to manage and
reduce nosocomial infections.
 State of the art active surfaces that
work to inhibit microbial populations
on environmental surfaces.
