OUC teamed up with Nemours Children’s Hospital to celebrate the hospital’s grand opening by giving elementary school children the chance to participate in a special lighting ceremony. The winners of a conservation-themed art contest received the opportunity to turn on the hospital’s colorful lights for the very first time. The colorful lights are unique to Nemours Children’s Hospital, where patients are able to pick the lighting color in their own rooms.
The winning schools received $1,000 to be used to teach children the importance of conservation and efficiency; knowledge which will help their families reduce their utility bills by making good decisions. Nemours also is going green. In fact, 90 percent of the hospital’s construction waste has been recycled, and reclaimed water is being used for more than 60,000 square feet of garden space. Nemours is working toward a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
