BOSTON, MA — Suffolk was recently recognized with a Healthcare Facilities Symposium Distinction Team Award at the 2022 Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo in Long Beach, California. This award was granted to the project team that recently completed the Hale Family Building project at Boston Children’s Hospital.  

The annual Healthcare Facilities Symposium awards program recognizes design teams, projects, and individuals who have made a profound contribution to the health care design industry. In addition, it recognizes the best and most innovative new products within the health care design and construction industry. The Hale Family Building project team was presented with the Team Award, which focuses on a project team that has worked together to change the face of health care design through innovation, creativity, efficiency, and teamwork.

Constructed by Suffolk and designed by Shepley Bulfinch, Boston Children’s Hospital’s new 11-story (with three additional levels below ground), 565,000-square-foot Hale Family Building further strengthens the hospital’s commitment to patients, families, and pediatric care. The Hale Family Building enables Boston Children’s Hospital to provide improved and efficient care while better supporting the teams who deliver that care.

The facility addresses growing patient volume and the delivery of high-level tertiary and quaternary care by adding space to improve patient flow and operational efficiencies for acute care, critical care, diagnostic, and other ancillary services on the hospital’s main campus. Industry-leading technologies have been incorporated into the building, including an IMRIS trolley MRI system and a pneumatic tube system that transports patient samples through the building to an automation line in the clinical laboratory. The Hale Family Building is the first pediatric institution in the world to incorporate either of these solutions.

As the leading pediatric hospital in the country, Boston Children’s Hospital’s facilities must be capable of delivering state-of-the-art care and a paramount experience for patients, their families, and the teams that provide and support this care. Any critical element requested was carefully reviewed by Suffolk's multi-disciplinary teams who collaborated to implement innovative solutions, and any challenge that arose was resolved in a timely and effective way.
