Categories: Press Room

IRVINE, Calif., April 11, 2017 --- Hoag Health Center Irvine, the 150,000 square foot health care village on the corner of Alton and Sand Canyon, was recently awarded three prestigious real estate achievements - LEED® Silver certification, “Best New Medical Office Building” by Healthcare Real Estate Insights Award™ and one of the top “New Construction” projects for 2016 from the SPIRE Awards by Corporate Real Estate Women Orange County (CREW-Orange County).

Receiving the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, Hoag Health Center Irvine was awarded for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

“It’s an honor to achieve LEED certification for Hoag Health Center Irvine and increase the list of LEED certified buildings on Hoag’s campuses,” said Sanford L. Smith, AIA, senior vice president, Real Estate and Facilities at Hoag. “The sustainable design speaks to Hoag’s commitment to our community’s health and well-being in everything we do.”

Hoag Health Center Irvine also received the 2016 Healthcare Real Estate Insights Award™ in the “Best New Medical Office Building 100,000 Square Feet or More” category, and was recognized as the second most important new construction project of 2016 from the SPIRE Awards by Corporate Real Estate Women OC (CREW-Orange County).

“We are proud to be recognized locally and nationally for this project. Expanding Hoag’s services in Irvine was designed with the intention to anticipate and meet the community’s needs, thus creating a health care village that gives patients access to specialty care in one, convenient location. We hope this patient-centric model of heath care will be an inspiration for the way others approach health care,” said Smith.
