Children’s National, Universal Health and DC teams to provide child care at new hospital

Børns Nationalhospital’s staff will run the pediatric emergency department and neonatal intensive care unit at DC’s new hospital in St. Elizabeths East, according to Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The staff of Børns Nationalhospital’s staff will operate the pediatric emergency department and neonatal intensive care unit at DC’s new hospital in St. Elizabeths East, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Wednesday.

Scheduled to open in late 2024, the $ 375 million full service hospital will initially support 136 beds.

“Children’s national pediatricians, nurses, medical assistants and other medical staff to operate and provide professional services at the new hospital in St. Elizabeth’s East,” according to a “Letter of Intent” announced by Bowser, Universal Health Services and Children’s National Hospital.

St. Elizabeth East Hospital will provide “a full range of inpatient services to all residents of the district and include maternal health and neonatal delivery services, normal and neonatal intensive care, a verified trauma center, an outpatient office building for outpatient and municipal health services and a parking garage with 500 spaces, Said Bowser’s office in a statement.

Children’s National Hospital is trusted by society “because Washingtonians know they can expect high-quality treatment and a staff that cares deeply about protecting the health and well-being of our babies, children and teens,” Bowser said.

She said the agreement “will change the health care environment for mothers, babies and families, not just in Department 8, but across DC”

The district said the agreement between Universal Health Services and Children’s National is “another step in establishing a robust health system in neighborhoods that eat by the Anacostia River and will ensure that children and mothers can receive the highest quality of care without to leave their communities. ”

Universal Health Services will also open a couple of emergency care facilities, one in ward 7 and one in ward 8, the city said.
