PSC designed the facilities at University Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital to serve as an identity that would address the special needs of patients and their families. This special opportunity gave PSC the ability to design spaces as unique as the children they would be serving.

As soon as the elevator doors open, one is immediately aware of the special nature of the Children’s Hospital by the colorful, kinetic children’s lobby. Playful windows punch through the red carousel wall to the play therapy space. The therapy playroom features soft, cushioned rubber flooring for comfort and easy cleaning. Along the red carousel wall, draperies allow visual privacy above a built-in banquette provided for parents to observe.

The teen room provides a separate technology laden space with specific attention given the needs of that age group. Adjacent spaces are a child specialist office, a volunteer office, toy storage, cleaning facilities and a patient library.
