Children’s National Hospital has opened its new comprehensive pediatric outpatient and specialty care centre within the Woodmore Towne Center in Lanham, Maryland, US.

With the new 60,000 square foot Children’s National Prince George’s County facility, families in Prince George’s County get access to a wide range of services.

The services provided include cardiology, neurology, hematology, allergy, and sports medicine and orthopaedics in addition to MRIs and outpatient surgery.

Children’s National Hospital president and CEO Kurt Newman said: “Children’s National has long served the families of Prince George’s County. I’m proud that our new site brings many of our specialty services together at one location, making it easier for patients to receive high-quality care.

“Our commitment to providing compassionate care extends to this site where each child will be cared for by a team of pediatric experts, ranked among the very best in the nation.”

An ambulatory surgery centre at Children’s National Prince George’s County will open next month, with infusion services set to be offered starting in November.

Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has truly shown that access to quality health care is absolutely critical, not just for Prince Georgians, but all Americans.

“We are excited to welcome this new regional facility of Children’s National Hospital to Prince George’s County, which will expand access to high-quality health care for children and families across our county.”

Children’s National Hospital will complete construction on the Children’s National Research & Innovation Campus, dedicated to pediatric research, this year.
