Renovations Nearing the Finish Line!

Two years ago, as part of the $35 million Every Child, Every Day campaign, sweeping renovations began at Hasbro Children’s to transform the region’s leading pediatric hospital and position it as a premier care provider well into the future. Today, most phases of the extensive work have concluded or are reaching their final stages, and all projects are expected to be completed by spring 2022.

“The finish line is definitely in sight, and we are all very excited about that,” says Tracey Wallace, Vice President of Pediatric Services. “The structural changes being made to our physical space reflect how health care has evolved over the years and incorporate what we know about the importance of creating family-centered healing environments to ensure optimal outcomes.”

Improving the hospital experience for patients and families and helping staff achieve their mission of Delivering health with care was at the heart of every design and construction decision—and it shows.

For patients and families, more comfortable furniture, new areas for quiet conversation or to consult with doctors, improved wayfinding signage, enhanced color schemes and plentiful art, and entirely reimagined outdoor space for respite and activities are just some of the welcome additions. Smarter room layouts, which enable staff quicker, easier access to the technology, equipment, and supplies they need, is but one example of the improvements on the provider side.

‘It took a village’

Tracey emphasizes that “it took a village” to get the hospital where it is today, and that many individuals and organizations are deserving of shout-outs. Chief among them, she says, are Dimeo Construction—our exceptional builder partner who was mindful to minimize any disruption to patient care—and, of course, our incredible donor community.

“Without philanthropic support we would simply not be able to do this work or be in a position to serve the community to the level that we do,” Tracey says. “We are fortunate and grateful to have such committed, caring people on our side.”
