Sustainability and Conservation Efforts[edit]

In 2015, Health City's sustainability efforts resulted in 3.6 million gallons of water saved and 2.7 million gallons of sewage effluent was diverted from ground disposal.[5] A waste reduction and landfill diversion initiative, which included recycling and onsite medical waste treatment, was also introduced and yielded a result of 60% of total waste being diverted from landfills. In terms of electricity conservation, the Caribbean hospital's infrastructure includes a building management monitoring system, as well as an HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system diversification. The official conservation report showed that energy savings for 2015 were over 2 million Kwh saved, just under 145,000 gallons of diesel saved and 3.5 million pounds of carbon saved.[6]

According to Robert Pearl, executive director and CEO of the Permanente Medical Group, the largest integrated healthcare system in the U.S., Health City is bringing together the "healthcare service of Bangalore and the technology of Silicon Valley."[7]

Future Expansion and Additions[edit]

Plans for expansion and additions to the Health City compound include an academic institution and biotech research facility.[8]
