The Centennial Campaign had three distinct areas of impact and outcomes – the Rosenberg Outpatient Center, the Ability Center and the Children's Fund.
The Jack & Mae Rosenberg Outpatient Center Expansion and Renovation
The expansion, completed and opened in June 2021, extended the Center’s clinical space from 14,000 square feet to 20,600 square feet, and allows for 16,900 additional patient visits each year. Interior designers refreshed the original lobby and extended the playful, inviting and child friendly theme throughout the clinic. Larger staff workspaces support collaboration among clinical teams and accommodate multi-disciplinary clinics. Design of the new spaces fosters integrated and cohesive care with best practices for electronic health record documentation and staff and patient safety in mind. Upgraded technology permits more telemedicine and larger workspaces enable social distancing. Medical gases are now available in all of the exam rooms and a dedicated medication room meets best practice guidelines. Seven new exams rooms bring the center to a total of 19 exam rooms, and eight additional psychology treatment spaces bring the private spaces for mental health services to 28. These new spaces allow for the addition of several innovative medical clinics including Gender Diverse, Making Valuable Progress (MVP) for infant complex care evaluations, Early Detection for cerebral palsy, and ReadyCare for urgent needs.
Ability Center Design and Build
Last spring, MWPH began construction on the Ability Center, a newly designed 4,000+ square foot technologically advanced rehab center. The Ability Center will meet the growing demand for medical and rehabilitation services in the region, addressing pediatric and adolescent patients who have sustained multiple traumas, have congenital or acquired disabilities, or need intensive post-surgical rehabilitation. This new rehabilitation gym will focus on outpatient clinics and a rehabilitation day program, resulting in an additional 15,000 patient visits for 1,200 new patients.
MWPH Children's Fund
The fund will help grow both Annual and Endowment to invest in priorities that propel MWPH forward including programs, equipment, capacity building, research, community benefit, capital improvements, and innovation.
