Hubbard Center for Children had expanded Children’s capacity by adding 100 additional beds. It also houses an expanded Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Care Center, and much more. It sits between the hospital and the Specialty Pediatric Center and integrates architecturally with the existing buildings.
The buildings are connected, allowing staff and patients to move conveniently through all three spaces. Children’s has also built an additional parking garage to meet the growing parking needs for patient families and staff.
The Hubbard Center for Children is the latest milestone in the life of Children’s — a timeline that includes the 1948 founding, the move west in 1981 and the opening of the free-standing hospital in 2000.
Expert Care from Caring Providers
The region’s children will have access to the most advanced care delivered by the most talented health care professionals – without having to leave the area even for the most complex care.
Cardiac Care Unit (CCU)
A floor exclusively dedicated to caring for the full spectrum of pediatric heart patients means that a child will remain on one floor for their entire hospital stay.
Children and teens diagnosed with cancers and blood disorders will have their own floor. This improves infection control for immunocompromised patients and allows children to get out of their rooms as much as possible.
Neonatal Intensive Care
Expanding to 52 rooms and doubling the current square footage, the new NICU will expand access to care. Rooms will be larger and more comfortable to improve the experience for patients and their families.
