Ghana Infectious Disease Center

Ghana Infectious Disease Center


The Ghana Infectious Disease Center (GIDC) is a new, 100-bed hospital in Accra, which has been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the first infectious disease center in Ghana, the GIDC will provide needed healthcare services to the city.

Due to the urgent need for an infectious disease center, the hospital was built in a record time of 100 days. Over 700 square meters of water-efficient landscaping was embedded throughout the hospital to provide as pleasant of an environment as possible for patient recovery.

Resource-efficient design and technologies, such as insulation, energy-saving lighting, and low-flow plumbing fixtures will lower the hospital’s utility costs. The operational savings from the green features enable a simple pay-back period of less than a year. Additional savings will then be rechanneled to provide greater care for patients.

The GIDC was developed by the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund, a private sector-led initiative committed to providing a prompt response to the hardship and suffering caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The GIDC has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.

IMSS Hospital Emergente COVID-19

IMSS Hospital Emergente COVID-19


El Institution Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS) has opened a new, 40-bed hospital in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Located in the City of Puebla in the neighborhood of “La Margarita,” the hospital will provide needed healthcare services to the community.

Due to the urgent need for the hospital, expedited construction using materials of high thermal and acoustic properties was a requirement. The hospital was built in only six weeks’ time by using an innovative, prefabricated construction system. WHO protocols and recommendations also had to be followed, including project design that allows for strict control of flow for patients, medical practitioners, and administrative staff (based on isolation and transfer techniques).

Resource-efficient design and technologies, such as reflective paint, occupancy sensors, and low-flow plumbing fixtures lower the hospital’s utility costs. The operational savings will then be used to provide greater care for patients, including medical equipment, training, and high-quality doctors and nurses. After the pandemic, the hospital structure will remain to continue to provide care for the needs of the community. This is particularly important given a history of earthquakes had damaged Puebla’s hospitals.

IMSS plans to develop more EDGE-certified hospitals in Mexico. The hospital in Puebla was developed as a PPP by IMSS and Movil Tech with construction by Kainsa, a Mexican company committed to responding to the infrastructure needs of its community.

IMSS Hospital Emergente COVID-19 has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.

Rainbow Children’s Hospital – Banjara Hills

Rainbow Children’s Hospital - Banjara Hills, located in Banjara Hills, India, has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Rainbow Children’s Hospital – Banjara Hills


The Rainbow Children’s Hospital in Hyderabad offers a resource-efficient and comfortable environment for both patients seeking care and the medical staff working to save lives. The new facility is situated in the Banjara Hills neighborhood and is the second Rainbow Children’s Hospital to be EDGE-certified (the first is located in Bengaluru). The Banjara Hills facility provides comprehensive services for pediatric care, a perinatal unit, and other services for women with state-of-the-art infrastructure and the latest technologies.

The 205-bed hospital has many green features that conserve natural resources and improve operational performance. The solar panel heat pump hybrid system installed in the facility is projected to meet at least 60 percent of the building’s hot water demand, contributing to the reduction in energy. A black water treatment and recycling system is expected to reduce water use nearly in half. Embodied energy in materials will be reduced by 42 percent because of construction materials like autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for the hospital’s walls. These green measures were implemented at very little additional cost and the developer is expected to recover their investment in less than a year. The hospital is also estimated to save nearly $6,000 due to lower utility bills each month, allowing more money to be allocated toward patient care.

Since 1999, Rainbow Hospitals has provided excellent care to women and children. Rainbow constructed the first facilities dedicated to pediatric care in southern India and now has 11 facilities for women and children across the country. Rainbow Children’s Hospital – Banjara Hills has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
