ONE YEAR Until the New Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Opens in Lawrenceville
Date:5/10/2008

th in the region.

Children's Hospital's is one of the fastest growing pediatric research programs in the country. In the last 20 years, research funding to Children's from the NIH has increased from less than $4 million to well over $20 million in 2006.

"The construction of our new campus in Lawrenceville visibly signals the beginning of a new era for children's health in Pittsburgh," said David Perlmutter, MD, physician-in-chief and scientific director at Children's Hospital and the Vira I. Heinz Professor and chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. "The new research building and the hospital campus will only strengthen our efforts to ensure that the research conducted will ultimately result in healthier lives for all of the children in this region and throughout the country."

Environmentally Friendly

The new Children's Hospital is designed as a "green" campus, meaning that buildings will use key resources such as energy, water, materials and land more efficiently than buildings erected simply to building code.

"It's been established that green (or environmentally sustainable) buildings contribute to the improved health, comfort and well-being of everyone who passes through, including patients visitors and staff, by utilizing more natural light and promoting better air quality," Oxendale said. "We have designed a hospital campus that will transform the lives of those we care for and of those who are providing the care."

In addition to using environmentally sustainable and local resources (everything from building materials to cleaning supplies), Children's will establish a "green" education program for staff, patients and visitors; install a "healing garden" for patients and visitors; and install air filtration and water fixtures that improve air quality and reduce waste.
