Texas Children's Special Isolation Unit

Body

Today, we celebrate the opening of Texas Children’s Special Isolation Unit, designed specifically for children with highly contagious infectious diseases. The state-of-the-art unit is the only one of its kind in Texas and the Southwest region, and among the few in the United States. We have spent more than a year planning and designing the space, which incorporates all of the latest technology to care for a patient with a contagious disease such as Ebola or MERS.

The unit includes eight beds, an on-site laboratory, team shower stations and locker rooms as well as other features. I invite you to watch the video above for a behind-the-scenes look at this indispensable resource for our community and beyond.
