Acibadem Atasehir Hospital: Our Newest LEED Certified Green Hospital

Opened on 9 September 2022, Acibadem Atasehir Hospital is Acibadem’s 10th hospital in Istanbul, Türkiye. Following on the heels of Acibadem Altunizade Hospital and Acibadem Maslak Hospital, Acibadem Atasehir Hospital is the third hospital to be LEED Gold certified for its energy-efficient green building designs.

Acibadem Atasehir boasts a dynamic lighting system that employs state-of-the-art motion sensors to optimise energy consumption and reduce energy wastage, while sustaining a hygienic environment for employees and patients.

Additionally, illumination sensors in common areas with natural light measure illumination levels and adjust lighting intensity accordingly, enabling energy savings in operations and enhancing comfort for our patients.

All elevators in the hospital are regenerative. Regenerative elevators are equipped with regenerative drives, which capture up to 60% of the heat generated by elevators during use and convert it into reusable electrical energy for the building rather than wasting it as heat.

The global energy crisis is spurring increasing demand for clean and renewable energy. Solar energy is a renewable and abundant energy source in Türkiye. That is why we decided to power most of our annual electricity consumption using solar energy. For Acibadem Atasehir Hospital, we are planning to invest in a 13 MWp solar power plant in 2023 to meet our annual consumption of 21,000,000 kWh.

A continuous monitoring system is in place to measure energy consumption in every utility system used in the hospital. This monitoring system enables our operations, maintenance and engineering teams to detect anomalies or errors in real time so that corrective actions can be deployed quickly to sustain high energy efficiency in our operations.

Environmentally-friendly features can also be found across the wider Acibadem Healthcare Group, including:
  • Sustainable sites such as underground car parks and vegetated areas on the roof, terrace and hardscape areas, which help to counteract the heat island effect.
  • Collection of rainwater in tanks to improve water efficiency and conserve water resource.
  • Season-based temperature control for air-conditioning, underfloor heating, chiller and boiler to achieve energy efficiency.
