Boston Children’s Hospital excels in providing the highest quality of care for their patients. For more than a century, Shepley Bulfinch has partnered with Boston Children’s on a variety of projects, including several expansion buildings and a number of multi-phased renovations. The new 11-story Hale Family Building, which anchors the most ambitious reimagining of its facilities, will address critical capacity needs and its delivery of high-level tertiary and quaternary care.
The newly named Boston Children’s Benderson Family Heart Center will be located in the Hale Family Building to optimize the patient experience and create a state-of-the-art comprehensive platform for cardiovascular services. It will improve patient flow and operational efficiencies through patient, family and staff centered design.
An integrated Heart Center
Boston Children’s Benderson Family Heart Center provides care to patients who are affected by congenital heart disease and those who have developed cardiac conditions in their childhood. It is one of the largest pediatric heart centers in the United States.
The clinical components of the existing Heart Center are located on four floors of five different buildings on its Longwood campus. Relocating the Benderson Family Heart Center to the Hale Family Building will smartly design a facility that serves the needs of cardiac care, provides adequate capacity for the current operations, and allows for anticipated future growth. The Heart Center offers comprehensive cardiovascular services that involve the departments of Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, and Cardiac Anesthesia, and it provides both outpatient and inpatient services.
