Children's Hospital and Health System, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin West Tower

Milwaukee, WI | 2009

This colorful and light-filled West Tower gives the Children's Hospital campus a new image and identity while adding 144 much-needed acute and critical care beds and a new clinical procedural core. A cardiology-focused high-intensity/high-acuity platform on one level includes operating rooms, cardiac catheterization MR and CT. On another, a more ambulatory environment houses operating rooms, minor procedure and endoscopic rooms, and interventional radiology. The overall strategy includes a four-phase plan for a child- and family-focused facility with clear internal orientation and circulation and connectivity between the new and old campuses, in a flexible design. The project’s first phase included a 270,000 s.f. Children’s Corporate Center and 1600-car parking structure, sited close to the existing hospital, for use by both campuses as the hospital transitions between the two.

Children's Hospital was nationally ranked in US News and World Report's September 2007 survey of pediatric hospitals.
