exterior detail

Families and young patients who enter the Hospital find world-class healthcare in a compassionate, wholly child-centric environment. To fulfill the client’s vision of continuously advancing pediatric care, the design relates to the needs and imagination of children, as well as to the requirements of pediatric medicine’s rapidly advancing technologies.

The design fosters confidence in the promise of modern medicine while being open and welcoming. State-of-the-art equipment and facilities coexist with inviting spaces to play and learn, as well as home-like patient rooms that accommodate overnight family stays. Other family-friendly spaces include a kitchen, resource center, and outdoor playground.
