Seattle Children's expansion gets council OK

April 5th, 2010 by hillaryu

The Seattle City Council made it official, approving the expansion plans of Seattle Children’s, which over the next four years will add 350 beds in four phases to more than double its number of beds.

The council vote comes after an agreement was reached in February with the Laurelhurst Community Club, which has long objected to expansion plans by the regional pediatric medical facility. It also builds on the recommendations of the Department of Planning and Development and the Citizens Advisory Committee.

Our partner the Seattle Times has more details.

Kids health fair Saturday at Seattle Children's

March 11th, 2010 by hillaryu

Free bike helmets, tours of an operating room and the opportunity to ask questions about the health of your kids are all part of this Saturday’s Seattle Children’s Health Fair.

The event, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is being touted as a “hands-on” community event directed mostly at kids age 3 to 8 but good for the whole family. Other highlights are expected to be crafts and music, the Teddy Bear Clinic (kids are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal for a checkup), and the Tooth Fairy (who will be available for chats). Quantities are limited on bike helmets and the child getting the helmet must be present to ensure proper fit.
