C.S. Mott Children's Hospital And Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital Celebrate One-year Anniversary

Loree Collett, associate hospital director, said patient growth has been steady and remained on target.

"We have filled the beds that we planned to have filled, but still have room to grow, but also are able to accommodate all of the patients referred to us," she says.

The number of babies delivered has grown about 7 percent from the old building and the number of patients visiting the emergency department is up about 10 percent.

"We are pleased that our new building has helped us attract more patients, but most importantly more satisfied patients and families. We are very proud of the high patient satisfaction marks and the smooth transition made by our staff," she says.

The building has received outside recognition as well. The hospitals were awarded LEED® Silver certification established by the U.S. Green Building Council.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. The certification is verified by the Green Building Certification Institute.

The hospitals incorporate many architecturally innovative and environmentally responsible features. The facility was built using strategies aimed at improving performance in many areas: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

The hospital also was ranked among the top 100 most innovative and inspiring infrastructure projects in the world by KPMG, the audit, tax and advisory firm.

KPMG International's second edition of the Infrastructure 100: World Cities Edition – a comprehensive report showcasing 100 of the world's most innovative and inspiring urban infrastructure projects included just 14 projects in the U.S.

"The one-year anniversary is a big day for us, and we have lots to celebrate. We have made a smooth transition and believe this state-of-the-art facility has accomplished what we hoped for: a compassionate environment for patients and their families and a place that allows our faculty to advance medicine," says Valerie Castle, M.D., chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Communicable Diseases.
