Our Office

The Whole Child Center is one of the first green pediatric offices in the United States.

We are committed to ecologically sustainable healthcare for children and families. What makes our Center green? We are mindful of the impact of the environment on health and the impact of healthcare on the environment. The use of certain building materials and operational practices is key to our green mission. Listed below are some of our resources. If you are interested in green building practices for your home or business, we encourage you to ask us about our experiences and come visit our space.
