Many families at Seattle Children’s are here for an extended stay and spend the majority of their time in a hospital room.
Families have asked for surroundings that support the day-to-day activities of family life – such as accommodating several visitors, providing play space for children and preparing a meal. These simple actions promote healing and help sustain the well-being of families.
The Building Hope expansion plans include family lounges on floors 4 and 5 and a teen lounge on the sixth floor. Each of these will contribute to the new building’s healing environment. Lounges will feature space for food preparation, microwaves and areas for families to share meals and conversation. These amenities will help families care for themselves and each other – within close proximity to their child’s medical team.
