After 166 years caring for complex pediatric patients, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia set a course to open their second hospital in King of Prussia, officially named the Middleman Family Pavilion. This second hospital required CHOP to transform their care delivery model from a world class pediatric trauma center and teaching environment, into a community hospital setting. The facility design of the Middleman Family Pavilion created intentional ties between the two hospital campuses, requiring patient transport, materials management, physician specialty consults, and other key services to re-imagine how they could deliver care within two hospitals. The operational planning required detailed design of the facility, technology, reporting relationships, and staffing model. Come hear about how the leadership team charted a vision for the new hospital and incorporated lessons learned from nationally recognized pediatric hospitals and their consultant partners – ECG and Covalus.

1: Distinguish the differences in care environments between CHOP's two hospitals.
2: Recognize the operational planning and facility activation efforts that led to a successful opening of CHOP's King of Prussia Hospital.
3: Identify some of the key facility challenges CHOP faced in building a second hospital that maintained operational ties to the Philadelphia Campus.
4: Develop a framework for your organization to think critically about new hospital activations in today's environment.
