Randall Children's Hospital Grand Opening

0 Comments

For decades Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel (formerly Emanuel Children's Hospital) has been a regional leader in providing excellent care to infants, children, and teens in Portland and the Pacific Northwest.  It is one of Oregon's largest providers of pediatric in-patient and trauma services.

This month, Randall Children's Hospital celebrated the grand opening of its new $245 million home on the campus of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center after three years of construction with an invitation-only Dedication Ceremony on Friday, February 10 and a fun-filled Community Opening Celebration on Saturday, February 11. Crews from Portland Fire and Rescue's Truck and Engine 13 were in attendance at both events.

The Dedication Ceremony featured Marian Wright Edleman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund and George Brown, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Legacy Health. The Community Opening Celebration, which ran from noon to 6 p.m., featured grand-prize drawings for family trips, a scavenger hunt, kite decorating, a photo booth, the kick-off of Hanna Andersson's Hanna-Me-Down program, music and entertainers, and tours of the new building.

  • The 334,000 square-feet, nine-story, 165-bed facility is four times the size of the original Children's Hospital.
  • All rooms are private, single-patient rooms, except for seven rooms for newborn twins. All rooms are designed for family-centered care, featuring space for patients, their families, and medical staff.
  • Interior design by ZGF celebrates four uplifting Pacific Northwest color palettes representing the geographic regions served by the hospital: the Willamette Valley, Cascade Range, Oregon Coast and desert.
  • The terrace garden gives the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center campus five healing gardens.
  • Art has been integrated into the building to promote a healing environment: from the frieze in the lobby, trees, and birdhouses in the gallery, to the animals and shapes in the environmental graphics in the patient corridors and patient rooms.
  • Building design by ZGF incorporates many sustainable building and landscaping design features and follows the Green Guide for Healthcare.
  • Construction of the new home began in August 2009 and was completed by the end of January 2012.
  • The Robert D. and Marcia H. Randall Charitable Trust, champions of community building and youth development, donated $10 million to support and name the new hospital in October 2011.
