At the time it was completed in 2016, the 88,000-square-foot green roof at Reading HealthPlex was the largest green roof in Pennsylvania and the third largest at a health care facility in the U.S., comprising over 72 percent of the building's overall footprint.

In addition to reducing heating/cooling costs in the building and improving stormwater management, the green roof provides patients and their families the calming benefits of nature that can enhance patient recovery time and clinical outcomes.

On the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 27, join Reading HealthPlex representatives and other project team members for an introductory seminar and walking tour of the green roof. The event will be followed by an hour of networking, drinks and appetizers at a nearby bar (exact location TBD).
