To create Seattle Children's Hospital, hundreds of passionate families, employees, and community members came together with ZGF Architects and VPI Representatives to craft a flexible, high-performance, patient-centered space. With eight floors above ground and three levels of underground parking, the project adds eight new operating suites, two catheterization labs, 20 flexible inpatient rooms, a new outpatient Cancer and Blood Disorders Clinic (CBDC), an outpatient infusion center, a retail pharmacy, an inpatient pharmacy, laboratories, and sterile processing space. The building connects to phase one, an inpatient bed tower, and an emergency department.
The intentional wayfinding layout called the Discovery Trail outlines four zones within the hospital, and beautiful artwork by Shaun Qwalsius Peterson brings it to life in color and detail. This space was intentionally designed to support both the patient journey and caregiver experience.
