The Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center (CHOC), located within the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, TN, is now complete. McCarthy Building Companies’ Inc. put the final touches on a new three-story 90,000 square-foot center, which serves as the hospital’s new entrance.
The new center houses 72 rooms for an array of services including pediatric imaging, lab services, pharmacy and pediatric specialty clinics such as cardiology, neurology, genetics, gastroenterology and orthopedics. McCarthy broke ground on the center in June 2017.
The center was designed and built to be a family-friendly facility that would engage children by distracting them from their illnesses, as well as meeting the complex needs of families and physicians. CHOC is now home to an array of services, including 21 pediatric specialties, the region’s only certified pediatric genetics counseling; centers for child psychology, physical therapy, and hypertension; and the H.E.A.L. (Healthy Eating Active Lifestyle) Center to address pediatric obesity.
