This Is Where Hope Lives

Hope has a new address at Seattle Children’s in a new building that’s home to over 330,000 square feet of state-of-the-art technology, medical skill and human compassion.

We call it “Building Hope” – a much-needed addition to Seattle Children’s main campus to meet the growing need in our region. It includes a new:

  • Cancer Center: 48 new private rooms for child, adolescent and young adult cancer patients, providing the comfort and privacy families need 
  • Emergency Department: Advanced design and almost twice the size, providing the best possible experience for patients and families
  • Critical Care Unit: 32 new private rooms equipped with the latest lifesaving technology for our region’s most vulnerable children

This Is Where Hope Thrives

Watch how the beautiful, healing environment of Building Hope provides improved patient care and comfort. It helps us keep our promise to the community – providing compassionate, family-centered care to the children who need it most. It’s not just concrete and steel, it’s hope.


First Patients Move into Building Hope

Seattle Children’s Building Hope adds 330,000 square feet and 80 new beds to help treat the region’s sickest children. On April 21, 2013, care teams moved patients into Building Hope’s new cancer and critical care units.
