Our Campus

About Our Campus

Changing lives for the better is what our new hospital campus is all about. Designed with our Children's family – patients, families and staff – in mind, our new hospital inspires positive transformation for all who pass through our doors.

For our patients and their families, we promise comfort and a healing touch by offering spacious private rooms, in addition to some semi-private rooms when needed (with overnight accommodation for parents) designed with kids in mind, and one of the largest family resource centers of any pediatric hospital in the world.

For our staff, we promise a state-of-the-art facility utilizing breakthrough technology, enhanced research facilities and an intelligent design to maximize efficiency in patient care.

Located in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville neighborhood, our facility is situated on 10 acres - 1.5 million square feet of usable space. Its design is based on input from physicians, nurses and families – to ensure it meets the unique requirements of pediatric health care providers and the patients they serve.
