The new five-story structure provides a high-performance healing environment, while creating a warm, inviting atmosphere for veterans and their families. The Sheward Partnership also served as the LEED and Sustainability Consultant guiding the achievement of Silver certification under the LEED 2009 for Healthcare Rating System. This project is one of the first LEED for Healthcare projects in the country, and the first for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
