The St. Louis Children’s Specialty Care Center is one of just a few stand-alone, comprehensive outpatient facilities in the U.S. focused exclusively on patients up to the age of 21. The center provides community care in a more accessible, convenient, and less intimidating environment.
The design team conducted broad research to understand how children interact and perceive healthcare spaces. Based on the findings, a number of different pediatric profiles were created – spanning the age and cognitive development spectrum – to understand how the environment could be leveraged as a therapeutic tool.
Healthcare Design took notice of the special facility and has featured it in their Photo Tour: PHOTO TOUR: St. Louis Children’s Hospital Specialty Care Center
