The 5,000 square foot unit, which opens May 6th, has 6 inpatient rooms, an exam procedure room, infusion suite, dedicated family space and multipurpose space. The central nursing station, supply rooms, and security systems were also incorporated into the unit. The project cost $4 million and was funded through philanthropy. Western Connecticut Health Network and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center have partnered to create a pediatric care alliance to provide specialized services. It's been named the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Pediatric Unit.
