Seattle, Wash.: Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center has completed a new two-story office building located at 6901 Sand Point Way NE.

The new building, known as Children's 70th & Sand Point, is located one mile north of the hospital's main campus. About 350 staff, representing 30 departments, will be based there. Previously, employees had been housed in offices in the Northgate and Lake City areas.

"We are delighted to be able to ‘welcome home' all of our off-site departments in one place closer to the hospital," said Treuman Katz, president and CEO of Children's.

"The community, in particular our neighbors at 70th and Sand Point Way, have been very collaborative and committed to working with us over the years, from the time this five-acre parcel became available," said Katz. "We appreciate their assistance and support for locating this important part of Children's operations to this site."

Designed by HKS Architects and built by Sellen Construction, the building occupies about one quarter of the site. Open space, including outdoor gardens, eating areas and plantings, surround the parking area.

Children's 70th and Sand Point will house a variety of functions essential to meeting Children's mission, from the Center for Children with Special Needs to Children's consulting nurses. It will also be the location for the new childcare center for employees, which opens April 1.
