New Building

The Health Center of the Future

On July 1, 2014, the Boriken Health Center moved to our new primary care facility, which was developed as the prototype Green health center in New York City.

Borikenís new building was built and is operated without the commonly used chemicals and materials that are harmful to people. In order to accomplish this, we follow and exceed the U.S. Green Building Council Guidelines for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Patient care which is free of environmental hazards is essential to the healing process. This kind of care is particularly important now when the environment is becoming the number one issue governing our day-to-day lives because of climate change predictions and ever-increasing awareness of the importance of indoor and outdoor environments.

The Health Center features clean air, efficient systems to reduce power consumption, less waste and less toxic cleaning products, low or non-VOC (Volatile Orgainic Compounds) emitting materials, more recycling and pure water filtration systems.

At Boriken, we are proud to be working with the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology to create the health center of the future.
