LEED certified: High-tech care for the earth, too.

The Pavilion is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified healthcare facility in this area. The building’s gold-level certification reflects the building’s energy emphasis through building components. LEED certification is based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project and the broader community.

Here are some of the things that make the Pavilion so "green:"

Pav Symbol - Native Plantings
NATIVE PLANTINGS
All grasses, flowers and plantings around the building are either native or well adapted to this region. These hardy specimens withstand extreme weather conditions and aid in water conservation, requiring only minimal irrigation to thrive.
Pav Symbol - Water
WATER EFFICIENCY
Xeriscape design conserves water through creative landscaping, evidenced by drought-tolerant plants in mulched beds, moisture-sensing irrigation and soil improvements. Inside, low-flow sinks and toilets also help reduce water usage.
Pav Symbol - Regional Materials
REGIONAL MATERIALS
More than 20 percent of the materials used in the construction of this building were extracted, processed, manufactured and obtained locally. The fill dirt, asphalt, roofing materials, paint and stone are all products of Olathe companies.
Pav Symbol - Recycled
RECYCLED MATERIALS
Repurposed pre-consumer and post-consumer materials were applied throughout in structural elements, such as metal studs, struts, lathe and joists, and in more visible components, such as wall plates, ceiling tiles, flooring and carpeting. Care was taken during construction to divert as much material from landfills as possible. In addition, recycling bins are available throughout the Pavilion for patients and employees to use.
Pav Symbol - Low Emitting
LOW-EMITTING MATERIALS
Paint, adhesives, sealants, coatings, carpeting and cleaning supplies chosen for construction and ongoing maintenance emit very low amounts of volatile organic compounds to create a friendly atmosphere for guests and for the environment.
Pav Symbol - Digital Imaging
DIGITAL IMAGES
All images created in this facility are digital for cutting-edge diagnostic clarity. The picture archiving computer system (PACS) is environmentally responsive, with no processing chemicals required and no need for extensive storage.

EXTRAS
We encourage patients and employees to travel green, too. The Pavilion features access to public transportation, dedicated parking for low-emitting and fuel-efficient vehicles and bicycle racks.
