The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Behavioral Health Building will be the largest behavioral health treatment and research center dedicated to children and adolescents on a pediatric medical campus in the U.S. The tour highlights the design of the behavioral health building with a focus on use, operations, occupants, and will focus on unique aspects of this building type. Participants will also see:

-Crisis Center designed to work in conjunction with, but remotely from, the Emergency Room. This space features a waiting room consult room model of care, medical treatment spaces, rooms to aid in the de-escalation of patients, an ambulance sally port, and 10 bed extended observation unit.
-18 Bed Inpatient Neighborhood (unit) – designed to meet latest Behavioral Health safety requirements while doing so in a beautiful and engaging way. Thoughtful design provides many daylight filled spaces meant to draw patients, family members, and caregivers into an effective and efficient care model. Lots of features included to empower patients and staff that have historically been relegated to institutional/prison like spaces. See examples of many safety and de-escalation features.
-Rooftop play deck and gym – designed as an energy outlet space where we can encourage kids to be kids. These spaces become central to teaching and encouraging wellness as a stabilization strategy.
