Lessons Learned from Move Day

First few Article Sentences

A new era in pediatric and adolescent healthcare was born in Southern California on July 17, 2011. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles carefully moved 191 inpatients into its new 317-bed, $636 million state-of-the-art hospital building, the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion.

For more than a year, the hospital staff planned the move down to the minute for each of the 191 patients, safely and efficiently transporting them from the existing hospital to the new Anderson building over an eight-hour period. It was an amazing display of coordination, synchronization and care, as doctors and nurses wheeled tiny babies in neonatal incubators, many of them hooked up to IVs and monitors, at an average of one patient every 2 ˝ minutes. Amazingly, every aspect of the move went smoothly.
