CONNECTICUT CHILDREN’S MEDICAL CENTER
Company description "CONNECTICUT CHILDREN’S MEDICAL CENTER"
When Connecticut Children’s Medical Center opened its doors on April 2, 1996, it combined the benefits of a brand new facility with the pediatric programs and staff of Newington Children's Hosptital and the pediatric departments of Hartford Hospital and University of Connecticut Health Center. It became the state's first free standing medical facility devoted solely to the care and well being of children. As one of the nation's newest children's hospitals, Connecticut Children's has quickly gained a broad reputation for excellence. Since opening the doors to the 123-bed facility, the medical center has served more than 500,000 children and youth from every city and town in Connecticut. Services are far reaching from nurturing babies to health with medical expertise and sophisticated surgical skill, to operating the largest primary care center between New York and Boston. Among its specialized services are regional pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, internationally recognized pediatric pediatric orthopaedics, a children's cancer center involved nationally in research and treatment protocols, a pediatric emergency department, a state of the art gait analysis laboratory for the diagnosis and treatment of children's walking problems, leading edge pediatric cardiology and comprehensive pediatric pulmonary services. The Connecticut Children's Medical Center School, 3 miles from the hosptial, is a private special education day facility serving up to 120 students from as many as 39 area towns. The vision for consolidating the pediatric services of UConn, Hartford Hospital and Newington began to take shape in 1986.
Family Centered Care Children look at a trip to the hospital much differently than adults-and they must be treated that way-by the professionals who truly understand their emotional needs. Parents and family are involved in all aspects of a child's care and are a vital part of the health care team. This is the blueprint of our approach to children's health care. As children enter the lobby of the medical center, they find an environment that's designed to make them comfortable and safe. Soaring glass walls and windows bring light into the building. Artwork done by children reassures visitors that they have entered a warm and friendly building. Every inpatient child has a private room and parents are encouraged to room-in at the medical center. Special couches convert to beds for parent sleeping. Kitchen and laundry facilities are also available to families on each inpatient floor. Understanding the developmental and emotional needs of children guides the staff in the way they care for children. Child Life specialists on staff work to make the hospital experience understandable and therefore less threatening for the child. Families are involved in all aspects of a child's care. In fact, a parent may accompany their child into the operating room and be present while anesthesia is administered. This helps greatly reduce a child's anxiety about being separated from a parent in an unfamiliar situation. For the first time in Connecticut, all a child's medical needs may be met in one facility devoted exclusively to pediatrics. All the equipment is child-sized. All the staff specializes in children's health. Bright, colorful playrooms and waiting areas are stocked with toys and games. A recent survey indicates that 9 out of 10 families who use Connecticut Children's Medical Center would recommend it to friends whose child needs hospitalization. Families from every city and town in the state have taken comfort in discovering that they no longer have to go outside Connecticut for specialized medical or surgical care for their child. It is available right here at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. The slogan says it all: "Kids are great! We just make 'em better." For a Virtual go to :www.ccmckids.com/Tour/slideshowie.html
