Finger Lakes Health Committed to Green Initiatives
Finger Lakes Health is proud to announce that as part of their commitment to being environmentally friendly and instituting green initiatives, they have installed four Carlisle Roof Gardens, measuring over 12,000 square feet, across Geneva General Hospital as part of the “Journey to the Best” Modernization and Renovation Project.

Carlisle Roof Garden materials utilized are optimized for rooftop environments. The porous materials are designed to retain maximum amounts of water while simultaneously promoting drainage. The reduction of storm water and the reduced amount of storm water runoff, delays the time at which runoff occurs, resulting in decreased stress on sewer systems at peak flow periods. Green roofs improve the buildings’ insulation and prolong the service life of heating, ventilation, and HVAC systems through decreased use, which helps with landfill management. In addition to the environmental benefits, the aesthetics of green roofs are visually appealing.

"There are many environmental benefits in implementing a green roof and they require very little maintenance. As part of being the best, Finger Lakes Health is
committed being environmentally responsible for the future generations of the communities we serve” states Frank Korich, VP and Site Administrator.

Geneva General Hospital’s green roofs will retain their color throughout the year and consists of four various types of Sedum panels: Acre, Voo Doo, Tri-Color and Blue Spruce. These plants were chosen as vegetation because they are both sustainable for our climate and region. These hardy, vibrant panels are placed to enhance the visual impact of the gardens. The gardens will be visible from patient rooms as well as common areas within Geneva General Hospital.
