Children's National Medical Center Opens Remaining Floors of Patient Tower
Date:2/23/2010

Move culminates 10 years of planning into state-of-the-art facility

Washington, DC (Vocus) February 23, 2010 -- Children’s National Medical Center recently opened the two remaining floors of the Inpatient Tower. The 6th floor north unit opened on January 12 and the 7th floor opened on February 21. A total of 39 patients moved into the new units.

The 6th floor north unit is home to a 12-bed inpatient unit used for Gastroenterology and patients who are treated through the Intestinal Rehabilitation Program. The south unit is home to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which opened in May 2009.

The 7th floor is a 50-bed unit for pulmonary patients and medical care patients, which includes a variety of conditions, including autoimmune diseases.

In November 2007, the first of three floors opened in the state-of-the-art Inpatient Tower. Other units are surgical care, heart and kidney, neurology, and critical care, including the region’s only Cardiac ICU unit dedicated to pediatrics.

“The opening of the final floors of the Inpatient Tower is the culmination of years of careful planning and provides a wonderful healing environment for our patients and families,” said Edwin K. (Ned) Zechman Jr., president and CEO of Children’s National.

Planning for the new patient tower began more than 10 years ago. Construction began in 2003. The new tower was designed with input from staff and patient families, providing a family-centered environment. Features include private patient rooms, furniture selected by staff and families, flat-screen televisions, laundry facilities, and a decentralized design.
