BLYTHEDALE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
Based on a master plan developed for this freestanding children’s rehabilitation hospital, E4H has completed a multiphase addition and renovation of Blythedale Children’s Hospital, completely replacing all existing patient rooms and creating a new face to the hospital. E4H was able to utilize the existing facilities to support the day programs/outpatient services provided by the hospital.
Phase one and two encompassed a 108,000SF addition and renovation, providing 86 beds, therapy and activity spaces, staff and support spaces, a new family resource center, new main entrance lobby, and a dedicated 10-bed traumatic brain injury unit as well as an on-site day hospital and education center. The pediatric and adolescent unit includes an activity room and teen lounge. The third phase includes the conversion of old nursing units into 16,500SF of long-term care.
E4H is currently working on renovations for Administrative space, a relocated and completely updated Pharmacy, and an expansion and complete renovation of the Therapy Village (PT/OT spaces). This sequence of work made room for the other areas to begin construction. Ten beds were also added by renovating a portion of the Phase one project.
