Sept. 19, 2017
The Phoenix Children’s Hospital is set to open its new trauma center on Sept.20, a $40 million expansion large enough for 100,000 patients.
“It’s a huge improvement for us,” said Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Critical Care Services Vice President Kathleen Moore. “Everyone wants to facilitate the best care to the children of Arizona.”
The new facility has six drop-off areas for ambulances, separate hallways for patients and visitors and a streamlined process for patients to get from the entrance to the trauma room.
