Driscoll Children’s Hospital North Pavilion Expansion & Renovation
Corpus Christi, Texas
SSR provided technology services for the expansion and renovation of Driscoll Children’s Hospital. The project included a 5-level, 180,000 SF expansion that created space in and outpatient procedures. The Pavilion features three units: a larger, modernized Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), including a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) dedicated to managing pediatric congenital heart disease; the Outpatient Surgery Center; and an Outpatient Laboratory.
The state-of-the-art space was designed specifically for children and their care givers. The patient rooms include spacious private rooms designed to make patients and parents feel more at home with a sleeping area and private restrooms. The common areas have a whimsical theme with bright colors and play areas throughout, including “Spencer’s Place,” which features interactive light boards to entertain young and old alike.
The initial buildout focused on the first two floors, with the remaining floors to be used for future growth.
