Places to Stay
There are several accommodations around the Medical Center that are convenient for your stay.
Most patient rooms in the West Tower are private. All patient rooms in the West Tower have been expanded to 330 square feet, nearly double the size of the original rooms.
In order to limit the number of people coming into your room, we are now utilizing eConsults. eConsults occur when an attending provider requests a subspecialty service or ancillary service meet with the patient via video. The patient is provided with an iPad to connect with the consulting provider. eConsults secure and confidential. The conversations are not recorded.
In order to limit the number of people coming into your room, we are now utilizing eRounding – using a mobile computer workstation with a camera, or a tablet, to allow members of your child’s health care team to participate in rounds via a video call from another location like a conference room, their office or even from home. This allows providers who would already be involved in your child’s care to stay connected – helping keep them up to date on your child’s journey and allowing them to learn and contribute valuable feedback about his or her case. eRounding is secure and confidential. The conversations are not recorded.
