Modern Healthcare awarded Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital the Award of Excellence for design and planning in healthcare facilities.

A member of Partners HealthCare, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, Massachusetts, opened last year as a LEED Gold-certified hospital and Boston’s first truly green building. In addition to being an environmentally friendly facility, Spaulding takes advantage of an inclusive design that is “human-centered” to address the needs of patients.

The hospital “merged form and function to create an environment of physical, mental and spiritual healing,” according to Modern Healthcare.
