The need for Seattle Children’s expansion has never been so clear as when you hear directly from the patients and families we serve. In this video you’ll meet families who have come to Children’s for care they can’t get anywhere else. They underscore the reasons why the hospital is embarking on a journey to increase the much-needed space available for cancer and critical care, called Building Hope. It is designed to expand our capacity to between 500 and 600 beds by 2030.

You’ll also hear from the dedicated staff who are devoted to providing the best care for our patients. They share the message that this hospital needs to grow. The underlying reason is an ever increasing pediatric population across a four-state region that requires the care only Children’s can provide.

From the Emergency Department to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, you’ll see examples of the increasing urgency behind the critically needed support of this Building Hope effort.
