The Milton District Hospital (MDH) has achieved a prestigious certification.
Halton Healthcare recently announced that MDH has achieved BOMA BEST® Gold certification from the Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada (BOMA Canada).
In 2017, the hospital underwent a significant expansion and achieved BOMA BEST® Gold certification with an assessment score of 88.5 per cent. The hospital’s assessment included the original facility built in 1959, along with the expansion.
According to Halton Healthcare, BOMA BEST® buildings are certified within five levels, with gold being the second highest level of achievement.
Additionally, they are evaluated on 10 environmental performance and management criteria including energy, water, air, comfort, health and wellness, custodial, purchasing, waste, site and stakeholder engagement.
“We are proud to work and provide care in a building that has achieved one of the highest certifications in excellent management and sustainability,” said Al Coady, Sr. Vice President, Redevelopment, Facilities & Retail Operations, Halton Healthcare.
“We would like to thank our partners at Johnson Controls for working with us to ensure that MDH maintains a healthy environment while also reducing our ecological footprint.”
Halton Healthcare’s Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital was the first hospital in the province to achieve Gold level certification in 2020.
“Achieving BOMA BEST Gold certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to making sustainability an essential part of the hospital’s future. I would like to congratulate all of our teams who contributed to achieving this certification,” concluded Denise Hardenne, President & CEO, Halton Healthcare.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
