GREEN STAR-RATED CINTOCARE HOSPITAL
A specialised surgical hospital development by Growthpoint Properties and Cintocare has opened in Pretoria, Gauteng, becoming the first five star rated green hospital in Africa.
Cintocare Hospital in the green Menlyn Maine precinct is a clinical centre of excellence focused exclusively on head, neck, spinal and vascular surgery. The hospital is the culmination of close collaboration between its operators, doctors, promoters, developers, owners and other stakeholders.
As Africa’s first certified green hospital, Cintocare incorporates numerous sustainable design and management features, earning its design certification from the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA). Healthcare facilities with green design have been found to deliver 15% faster recovery rates, a 22% reduction in need for pain medication, an 11% reduction in secondary infections and an 8.5 % reduction in hospital stays.
Growthpoint owns the biggest portfolio of green-certified buildings in Africa.
