The doors to the new Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care are now open! Located on Civic Center Boulevard just south of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Main Building, on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus, the Buerger Center will be home to outpatient services for many of our clinical subspecialties.
As of Monday, July 27, 2015, departments now providing services at the Buerger Center include:
- The Center for Childhood Communication, including the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology departments. The 5th floor of the new facility is uniquely equipped to accommodate patients and visitors with hearing loss and communication disorders. Welcome and registration areas will have video interpreting for sign language, remote real-time captioning and “hearing loop” systems.
- The Division of Otolaryngology, including the Center for Pediatric Airway Disorders, Pediatric Voice Program, Pediatric Cochlear Implant Program and the Pediatric Skull Base Surgery Program. The new patient examination and treatment rooms are designed specifically for the treatment of patients with the full spectrum of pediatric ENT disorders, from the routine to the complex.
More clinical departments will move to the Buerger Center throughout 2015, including Radiology, Sedation, Hematology, Oncology, the Musculoskeletal Center, Orthopedics and PT/OT. Clinical departments providing care for similar patient populations will be located together for ease of wayfinding and travel for patients and families.
