In addition to a relocated pediatric emergency department, hospital programs will include cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology, endoscopy, radiology/fluoroscopy, and imaging services (CT, MRI). The pavilion will provide 12 operating rooms (nine dedicated to pediatrics) and 98 medical/surgical beds, as well as procedure rooms, pediatric clinical exam rooms, labor/delivery/recovery rooms, antepartum/postpartum/gynecology beds, pediatric critical care unit, neonatal intensive care unit, and a nursery. Hospital parking garage access will be provided via a pedestrian bridge connector. A helicopter pad will also be provided.
