Corps of Engineers, top brass cut ribbon on DOD's 1st LEED-Platinum hospital
The new Weed Army Community Hospital at Fort Irwin, California, is the Department of Defense's first carbon-neutral medical facility built in the U.S. It generates all of the energy it needs by solar power and other renewable energy systems. It is one of three LEED Platinum medical facilities built in the U.S., but the only one built for DOD.
