The Most Advanced Children’s Hospital In SoCal
With the completion of the seven-story patient care tower at CHOC Children’s Hospital, families in Orange County, CA have a bright new pediatric hospital facility to help children heal and feel more at ease when they become ill or injured and need specialized medical attention. Specifically designed for the care of children, the new 425,524-square-foot patient tower provides leading-edge technology and advanced programs and services in a child-friendly, healing environment.
Designed to be one of the most advanced, safest children’s hospitals in the world, the state-of-the-art tower includes the region’s only dedicated pediatric operating rooms, emergency department, imaging department and laboratory. Enhanced patient and family amenities include Seacrest Studios, an in-house broadcast multi-media center; pre-teen and teen rooms; patient outdoor play area; café and outdoor garden; family resource center; and meditation and prayer center.
Another key aspect to the project’s early completion was the development of a phased construction schedule that took a great deal of coordination and planning with the project team and the hospital in order to implement the plan and minimize disruption to the existing hospital.
“Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology in conjunction with the design-assist delivery method were used early in the design phases of the CHOC project to coordinate the tower’s intricate drawings for the mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) and other related systems.”
