Packard Children's Opens West Coast's Most Advanced Pediatric Surgery Center
Date:1/7/2009

ists use play therapy to prepare children for their surgery experience.

"It's a very kid-friendly environment," said Albanese, "and doesn't seem like a traditional hospital or OR."

Then patients move to a pre-op holding area, where each bed has a TV and space for families wait. Each child is assigned a confidential tracking number during surgery, and parents can check display screens in the waiting area to see where their child is in the surgical process. Soon after surgery, parents join their kids in the 12-bed recovery room. The suites are designed to make the experience of surgery as anxiety-free as possible.

In short, the new facility delivers improvements in every aspect of patient care.

"Innovation begets innovation," said Albanese. "We can think more broadly, generate new ideas, and figure out how to make things better for our patients. We're all very excited."

The Ford Family Surgery Center was built with a lead gift from the Thomas W. Ford Family and gifts from HEDCO Foundation, Morgan Family Foundation, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, The Schow Foundation and The Valley Foundation.
