Outpatient Care Center
More than 20,000 children and adolescents live in the Ward 4 neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
In 2020, we’ll open a new outpatient care center that will include comprehensive pediatric primary care to conveniently serve this community.
With our development of a portion of the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center Campus, Children’s National Hospital is increasing convenience for existing and new patients.
We are restoring the exterior of a historic 1930s era building to reflect its former beauty, while creating a modern, family-friendly space inside. In addition to comprehensive primary care services, it will also house the clinical services of our Rare Disease Institute, which treats children with genetic and metabolic diseases.
The opening of this new outpatient care location is part of an overall strategic effort by Children’s National to increase access and convenience for patients by locating pediatric primary and specialty outpatient services in community locations. Doing this also allows us to better address health needs that may be specific to the surrounding community.
About the Center
This center will be staffed by a team of diverse care professionals including pediatricians, geneticists, psychologists, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, nurses, care coordinators and technicians. We’ll have 24 exam rooms and two consult rooms in more than 29,000 square feet of space. There will also be an outdoor play area.
