New $245 million facility on Legacy Emanuel campus
After three years of construction, the Randall Children’s Hospital, located on the campus of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in north Portland, opened its doors to the public with a grand opening celebration throughout the weekend.
For decades, the children’s hospital at Legacy Emanuel has been a regional leader in providing care to infants, children and teens in Portland and the Pacific Northwest.
As one of Oregon’s largest providers of pediatric inpatient and trauma services, with more than 600 physicians and surgeons, the health center provides services to nearly 100,000 youth each year.
The new $245 million children’s health facility will provide acute care, neonatal intensive care, pediatric intensive care, emergency care, children’s day surgery, imaging, rehabilitation and cancer and hematology care at the Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Program.
The Children’s Emergency Department is also more than twice its former size, completely separate from adult emergency care.
The building, which followed the “Green Guidelines for Healthcare”, incorporates sustainable design features throughout the building and landscaping, and features family spaces, three new glass-enclosed family lounges, five playrooms, a classroom, a teen center, an art therapy studio, a theater, a wellness center, a gallery and a terrace garden.
