Children's Health and Wellness Center | Danbury Hospital, Danbury, Connecticut
Children in need of medical treatment and their parents will find several pediatric specialties under one roof at The Children’s Health and Wellness Center. The Center provides easy access to pediatric specialists in diabetes, asthma, and behavioral health and demonstrates the Hospital’s commitment to strengthening pediatric services in the community.
Patients and families get care in a child-friendly and convenient setting. The facility is a culmination of colorful, inviting spaces for young patients. There is a large waiting room with an area that has a small structure resembling a boat. Computer stations are available for use and are outfitted with video games as well as programs about the human body. In the center of this area is a 6 x 10 foot virtual, interactive aquarium with video fish that swim away when children reach out for them. Three-dimensional murals and contemporary furnishings with child-friendly design elements complete the space.
The colors and patterns used on the walls are bright and cheerful. Artwork disguises the file holders in the hallways where physicians place their charts. Each of the seven exam rooms has a large number on the door with its own individual color scheme. With many specialists under one roof, it is convenient for families in Connecticut and nearby New York to access high quality care for children and adolescents. It is the only child-centered specialty clinic in western Connecticut.
