Private Hospital Rooms

Comer Children's was designed to provide advanced pediatric inpatient care in a family-centered environment. With the exception of intensive care, all patients have a private room during their hospital stay. Each room has large windows so children can enjoy sunlight and an outdoor view.

Designed to Streamline Comfort and Care

In addition, key resources have been carefully located to make the hospital more functional for children and families, as well as physicians and staff.

For example:

  • Panera Bread, the Family Learning Center, and a meditation garden are easily accessible on the first floor. Additional resources, including family lounges and playrooms, are available on other floors.
  • The chapel is accessible from the lobby, yet set back from mainstream traffic for peace and privacy.
  • Related clinical areas, such as the complex immediate care unit and the operating rooms, are located next to each other to streamline patient care.
  • The satellite pharmacy is centrally located, making it easily accessible to staff members from all units.
