520    This book describes the Sustainable High Quality 
       Healthcare (SustHealth) project, which had the goal of 
       developing an original multidisciplinary evaluation tool 
       that can be applied to assess and improve hospitals 
       overall sustainability. The comprehensive nature of the 
       appraisal offered by this tool exceeds the scope of most 
       current rating systems, which typically permit a thorough 
       evaluation of relevant environmental factors when 
       designing a new building but fail to consider social and 
       economic impacts of the design phase or the performance of
       the hospitals operational structure in these fields. The 
       multidisciplinary evaluation system was developed, from 
       its very inception through to its testing, by following a 
       scientific experimental method in which a global 
       perspective was constantly maintained, as opposed to a 
       focus only on specific technical issues. Application of 
       the SustHealth rating tool to a currently functioning 
       hospital, or one under design, will identify weaknesses 
       and guide users to potential low-cost short-term solutions
       and longer-term strategies for improvement.
