Pediatric Clinic Readies for Renovation
Friday, March 05, 2010
Next week, Joslin’s pediatric clinic begins to undergo a significant renovation that will allow for more optimal multi-disciplinary care delivery for children with diabetes and their families.
“We can provide more comfort and support to children and families, allow for easier interactions between our team members, and create better overall utilization of our space to meet the needs of the growing numbers of children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes,” says Lori Laffel, M.D., M.P.H., Chief of Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology.
In addition to a general upgrade of the facility, the renovation will reconfigure the clinic space more efficiently to feature an enhanced reception area, an improved space in which child life specialists can meet with children, an added exam room, a bathroom allowing handicapped access and a Joslin Vision Network room in which children can receive eye exams as part of their regular visits. The clinic will temporarily move to a location nearby on the second floor until the renovations are complete this summer.
“We’re extraordinarily grateful to the remarkable generosity of a Boston-based foundation, which provided funding for this improvement,” Dr. Laffel emphasizes.
