These newsletters are part of our effort to inform and include the community in our operations. Check back to read our latest quarterly newsletter and find out more about what is happening at the hospital.
Designed by HDR in association with Taylor Design, the hospital celebrates 100 years of caring for Bay Area children, while also taking bold and dynamic steps toward the future. Colorful glazing faces Martin Luther King Jr. Way and BART trains, creating a vibrant gateway to the campus along 52nd Street. Further, the original courtyard is re-established as the main entry, welcoming patients to the hospital.
Since our last newsletter, there have been a lot of exciting changes at Children’s Hospital Oakland. We have been hard at work pursuing our Modernization Plan with the City of Oakland. In the next few months, a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be released, and the community will have the opportunity to review and provide written comments on the Draft EIR when it is issued later this summer.
Over the past few months, we have heard several suggestions and comments about our Modernization Plan from neighbors who attended the City of Oakland public hearings and the Children’s Oakland sponsored community meetings. We have given your feedback serious consideration, and have been working hard to incorporate your input into the design of our Modernization Plan.
We have heard from the community about your passionate interest in sustainability. We agree and believe that sustainability is vitally important to our mission. We are creating a path for the successful implementation of sustainable features in our new clinic and renovated hospital buildings. Environmentally sensitive and high performing buildings allow us to effectively deliver quality healthcare services and nurture the healing and health process of children and their families.
