What is GreeNYMC?
As a leader in biomedical higher education, New York Medical College prides itself on being at the forefront of innovation and educational opportunities. Its students, faculty, and staff are champions of constantly developing new and improved ideologies and approaches to medical education. We, therefore, felt it was our responsibility to lead our peers in incorporating sustainable options and programs on campus. 

7 Dana Road Green Initiatives
To qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification at the "gold" level, efforts were ramped up in the renovations of 7 Dana Road - home of NYMC's Clinical Skills and Disaster Medicine Training Center and BioInc@NYMC. The building features:

  • Responsibly-harvested wood and recycled materials
  • Paint, toilets, adhesives, and tiles that have either no amount, or trace amounts, of volatile organic compounds that emit noxious vapors, which make the building's air free of respiratory irritants
  • Cleaning products that are non-toxic and HEPA filter vacuums
  • Plumbing fixtures that feature water-conserving technology 
  • Low-mercury, high-efficiency lighting
  • Energy-efficient appliances
  • Recycling stations
