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.
