The outpatient clinic occupies the 14th floor of the Clinical Care Center at Texas Children’s Hospital and is comprised of over 36,000 square feet of space with 23 exam rooms, 4 procedure rooms, 4 hematology acute care rooms, 5 day hospital rooms (Urgent Care Bay) and a large infusion suite divided into areas for toddlers, young children and adolescents, respectively. 11 exam rooms are reserved for oncology patients. 12 exam rooms are reserved for hematology patients.
The Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers’ 36-bed unit is located on the 9th floor of Texas Children’s Hospital’s West Tower.
The 20-story building’s inpatient rooms are family friendly and use the latest pediatric technological advances. Some of the other amenities of West Tower include a family services floor featuring pre-teen and teen activity rooms, a business center, library and classrooms; family rooms located on each patient-care floor designed as a respite for parents and families; and large patient rooms, approximately 330 square feet in size.
Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMT)
Our Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) / Stem Cell Transplant Unit is the largest of its kind in the Southwest. Designed with comfort in mind, the rooms are playfully decorated and because of an innovative air-handling system, there’s no need for patients or their visitors to wear a mask.
Our 15 bed Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) / Stem Cell Transplant Unit is located on the 8th floor of the West Tower. It is the largest of its kind in the Southwest. The inpatient transplant unit is uniquely designed with children’s needs in mind.
A specialized HEPA air-filtration system allows children to safely leave their rooms and roam freely in the BMT unit with limited risk of contracting infections. This allows them to socialize in a cheerful home-like environment, which includes an exercise room, a playroom, complete with toys and computers, and a family room. Because of the innovative air-handling sustem, there is no need for visitors to wear masks or gowns, which reduces the child’s feeling of isolation.
