Community Preview Party For New Children’s Hospital Kennedy Outpatient Center Is Sunday

Friday, December 7, 2018

Members of the community have an opportunity to tour the new Children’s Hospital Kennedy Outpatient Center on Sunday from noon-3 p.m. before the building is officially open to patients.  
 
The new facility will house more than 50 pediatric subspecialists associated with Children’s Hospital at Erlanger including cardiologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, neurologists and orthopedists who will serve more than 100,000 patients annually for outpatient services.  
 
“This building is one of a kind in the nation for not only providing more access to pediatric specialists but also for transforming the way we care for children,” said Don Mueller, FACHE, vice president and CEO of Children’s Hospital.  “Every aspect of the architecture, interior design, activities, and patient care areas were created with the help of our patients, staff and community input.  The colors, artwork and technology were all made-to-order with children in mind.”
 
Attendees have an opportunity to tour the 90,000 square foot facility to view photography and artwork by local artists, see a hang glider suspended from the ceiling, sit in the Giving Tree, stroll in the secret garden, play with the fire truck and Sally the tow truck and enjoy many more child-friendly features. 

Special guests from the Chattanooga Zoo, Rock City, Tennessee Railroad Museum, Chattanooga Fire Department, Boy and Girl Scouts and the North Pole will also be in attendance.  Musical entertainment, holiday design cookies and hot chocolate stations will round out the holiday festivities.   
The Kennedy Outpatient Center is located at 900 East Third Street in Chattanooga.
