The Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children is a specialty hospital providing a healthcare environment tailored exclusively to child recovery. The exterior design is unique and provides a recognizable element to the University Medical Center campus. The child-like playfulness of corridors, nurse’s stations, waiting areas and patient rooms were carefully designed to lend character to the spaces while incorporating the more serious modern requirements of healthcare for children. The hospital accommodates staff with necessary functions including a pediatric intensive care unit, standard patient wards, private patient rooms and specialized secure recovery rooms, the hospital also houses suite-type living quarters for parents to stay overnight, and activity rooms which give the children a place to play.
