ealth facilities can achieve sustained success only if they are able to reconcile economic and ecological goals. Support is offered here by Siemens’ "Green+


Hospitals" - a modular program which health facilities of all sizes can use to achieve their environmental efficiency and quality goals both simultaneously and quickly. "Green+ Hospitals" not only includes holistic concepts for a high savings potential in energy and resources, but also offers solutions for optimized workflows that enable efficient usage of time and money. Treatment quality and comfort are the most important


evaluation criteria from a patient's point of view. With "Green+ Hospitals", Siemens offers solutions for short examination times, reliable and low-dose diagnoses and patient well-being and entertainment.


how "green" is your health facility? Part of the program is the "Green+ Check" that helps healthcare providers to assess their initial situation and define a Sustainability Masterplan. Once the basic data has been collected and a workshop attended by all project participants has been held, a "Green+ Score" sustainability index is determined to inform the hospital’s management as to just how sustainable it currently is. Furthermore, the "Green+ Radar" provides an overview


of the strengths and weaknesses of an institution and gives hints where improvement measures pay off fastest - for the benefit of patients, in the interest of financial success and for the protection of our environment.
