Texas Children’s Hospital The Forum Luncheon previews design of Woodlands campus
On Tuesday, April 14, nearly 800 guests attended Texas Children’s Hospital’s The Forum Luncheon in The Woodlands. Michelle Riley-Brown, president of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, treated them to the very first look into what will be the only dedicated pediatric hospital serving The Woodlands and other communities north of Houston when the doors fully open in 2017. Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands is being designed—top to bottom—with children and families in mind. Attendees previewed a virtual, behind-the-scenes tour of the Emergency Center, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), operating rooms, inpatient rooms and the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic through the eyes of three Texas Children’s patient families: Bennett Rhymes, Skylin Parker and Noah and Sammy Folloder. Each of the first-hand accounts highlighted the expert care Texas Children’s provided to them, which will soon be available closer to home for these families and the 380,000 children in the area.
Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands building project is part of the Promise campaign. The goal of the comprehensive $475 million fundraising effort is to help ensure the future of Texas Children’s as a leader in pediatric and women’s health.
