About the project

Situated on the west end of the existing hospital, this addition to the Valley Children’s Hospital houses new space for the emergency department, imaging, patient wards, surgery, pre-op, PICU, NICU, and support areas. Other additions include an icon structure and a canopy. 

Special steel moment frames were adopted under the FEMA and AISC design guidelines to provide seismic resistance. Special wall assemblies and isolated foundation and housekeeping pads were developed to achieve ANSI Class B and C vibration criteria to mitigate vibration and noise generated by imaging equipment and approaching emergency helicopters.
