At Cook Children's we are always evaluating our facilities and services to make sure we're providing the best possible care for our patients and patient families. In response to emerging needs, a new South Tower will be built by 2016.
We have experienced tremendous growth over the past several years, and that's putting pressure on two of our key treatment areas: the Emergency Department and our operating rooms.
In response to these needs, the new South Tower will include:
Our Emergency Department (ED) consistently ranks as one of the busiest in the nation. The children who walk through the ED doors receive the highest level of care possible as part of a Level II Trauma Center.
However, our ED was built to serve about half of the 120,000 patients seen each year. The new Emergency Department will be designed to lessen wait times. It will have more, and larger, exam rooms and a superior layout designed to better accommodate the existing volume of patients.
Our new operating rooms will make room for the latest advances in technology. The new layout will allow for more efficient delivery of services and ceiling space to accommodate advanced technology. The new Surgery Suite will be on the second level of the South Tower and will house:
The new Heart Center will be the home for all cardiology services to be located on the same floor, including the catheterization labs (two labs are planned), operating rooms, cardiac intensive care unit and a cardiac step-down area. It will be located on level three of the upcoming South Tower. The cardiac step down will be located on the third floor of the main building.
