UC Davis Children’s Hospital opened its new Children’s Surgery Center, a 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art pediatric facility this week.
The new children’s surgery space, spanning two floors, includes a brightly colored waiting room with a play area, four general operating rooms, a cardiothoracic operating room, a complex surgery operating room and a procedure room. The space also has 24 pre-op and post-op rooms. All have been developed with bright colors and a child-friendly design in mind.
“We are so proud of this new space, which has been years in the making. UC Davis Children’s Hospital continues to elevate its pediatric surgical services and this new children’s surgery center provides unparalleled technology and state-of-the-art surgical equipment so we can serve even more children in our region. The new facility will further enhance resources available for our children and allow us to continue to support optimal patient outcomes,” said Wendy Willson, executive director of perioperative services at UC Davis Health. "It is a true gem for families in Sacramento and beyond."
