The article deals with Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification received by Providence Newberg Hospital in Newberg, Oregon. A hospital press release states that the operation purchases 50% wind power, 25% low impact hydropower and 25% geothermal power. It uses about 40% less water and 26% less energy than a normal hospital due to these elements. Beyond the design of the building, the operation uses cleaning supplies and practices that reduce its impact on the environment.
