About Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus
Located at I-10 and Barker Cypress, Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus is Houston’s first community hospital designed, built and equipped exclusively for children. Built on 55 acres with ample free parking spaces and plenty of room for future expansion, Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus will serve one of the nation’s fastest growing pediatric populations –the area from Sugar Land to Bryan-College Station, Texas.
The 515,007-square-foot hospital houses the only 24/7 pediatric emergency room in the Greater West Houston area, two operating rooms, 48 intermediate and acute-care patient beds, advanced imaging services including MRI and CT scans, a neurophysiology sleep lab, a pathology lab and a full-scale pharmacy. While West Campus is equipped and staffed to handle a myriad of medical needs, patients requiring highly specialized care, such as organ transplant surgery, will be referred to Texas Children’s Main Campus for treatment.
Incorporating evidence-based design elements that promote patient well being, each patient room has an exterior window that allows for natural light and gives patients scenic views of water and nature. Other elements that focus on children include child life play areas on every inpatient floor, artwork created by children and for children throughout the hospital, and an operation simulation room that helps reduce anxiety for young patients by letting them see, touch and talk about the equipment and treatment steps of their upcoming procedure in a safe, non-threatening environment.
The examination rooms at West Campus are large enough to accommodate parents, siblings and extended family. While patients are in surgery, resting or undergoing treatments, family and visitors can access the on-site library, playrooms located on every patient floor, a dining area and the serene non-denominational chapel.
