The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai is a center of excellence focused on the care and treatment of children. The goal of this project is to provide a state-of-the-art environment that is both conducive to healing for pediatric patients and that also encourages family participation in their care. This comprehensive renovation and expansion of the hospital’s pediatric program includes a pediatric inpatient unit, as well as a new lobby that serves as the primary access for the existing labor and delivery unit.
The design creates a new and distinct physical presence for Sinai’s pediatric center of excellence. It frames the campus and provides a new lobby which serves the new Samuelson Children’s Hospital and the Blaustein Women’s Health Center, as well as the Labor and Delivery Department.
The full continuum of care in this single inpatient unit includes medical surgery (med/surg), oncology specialty care, and universal inpatient rooms which can provide intensive care. The next phase of the project will add an adjoining outpatient children’s diagnostic unit.
