Transforming Hospital Design

Several aspects of the Packard expansion project have been improved by the first-hand participation of physicians, nurses, multidisciplinary care teams, and parents. Their input and feedback has led to a number of important changes—before construction even begins.

How Does the Garden Grow?

For the children and expectant mothers who come to Packard Children’s, the new gardens will be a retreat where they can savor the sights, smells, and sounds of nature. The hospital is adding more than three acres of greenery, connecting the new facility to the existing one while providing a backdrop of calmness and serenity.
