The new and expanded Pediatric Specialty Clinic “connects” in a seamless transition to the second level of the new University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. The design of the space carefully considers the critical adjacencies between the outpatient pediatric components and the new Children’s Hospital. Similar finishes are being utilized to represent the clinic and conference center as an extension of the Children’s Hospital. The area contains all of the pediatric outpatient specialty programs including GI, Surgery, Pulmonary Dermatology, Cardiology, ECHO, Rheumatology, and more.
Location of the Pediatric Specialty Clinic was critical to fulfilling a cohesive centralized care delivery system for patients and their families. Proximity to the new Stead Family Children’s Hospital maximizes the integration of an existing and welcoming environment with a new design grounded in the indigenous heritage of Iowa.
The public entrance to the Pediatric Specialty Clinic (PSC) is located on the second level of the main university hospital directly across the bridge from the Stead Family Children’s Hospital to provide easy wayfinding and minimize travel distances.
