    BSA LifeStructures: The Children's Mercy Research Institute (CMRI) stands as a testament to the importance of translational medicine - research aimed at determining the relevance of pediatric diseases through novel discoveries, bringing that research expeditiously from lab to bedside and back again. The DNA pattern depicted in the building's facade and throughout the inside represents the mutation that causes the condition for which these young patients are being treated.

    ERDMAN: The new pediatric emergency department at Lehigh Valley Health Network doubles LVHN's capacity to care for kids. Designed specifically for children and their families, each room is equipped for all levels of care. It is the only pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center in the region.

    EUA: EUA designed a 22,500 sq ft outpatient orthopedic expansion for the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, as well as renovated the existing Children's Wisconsin clinic located in Greenfield, WI. Renovations included updates to the sports therapy gym, orthopedic services, audiology, and teen health clinic. (© 2021 Lacy Landre)



    EYP: The new Intermountain Primary Children's Hospital on the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus located in Lehi, Utah, is a bold expansion of the Intermountain network of care in a fast-growing region of the country. The new hospital designed by EYP includes family and child amenities, diagnostic services, pediatric emergency care, inpatient units, pediatric intensive care, neonatal intensive care, and behavioral health. The campus also includes a three-story ambulatory care center housing a range of pediatric specialties. (© 2019 EYP, Inc./Intermountain Healthcare)



    Page: Designed by Page, the Driscoll Children's Health North Pavilion located in Corpus Christi, TX is remarkable for its use of colors and features designed to be seen through the eyes of a child. These elements also serve to reinforce an intentional first impression and function as way finding in this bilingual community. (© 2021 Peter Molick)



    Stantec: A joint venture of Stantec and KPMB Architects, Project Horizon is SickKids’ 10-year campus redevelopment project. The goal is to build an inspired hospital of the future; transforming care delivery, enabling staff, physicians, and researchers to do their best work; and empowering patients and families to be partners in their care.

    ZGF: Prior to the construction of Jim Pattison Children's Hospital, Saskatchewan was one of only two Canadian provinces without a dedicated pediatric hospital. Families had to either travel out of the province or to the existing Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, known for its aging facilities and shortage of beds. The new 176-bed children's hospital now serves the entire province. (© 2019 Ed White Photographics)
