Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital opened an entire new facility in 2010. Le Bonheur is designed to be energy efficient and socially responsible. Le Bonheur is the fifth LEED-certified children’s hospital in the U.S.
Visitors to Le Bonheur are greeted by the 17-foot mosaic statue “I Can Fly.” Four seasons are depicted on the sides of the statue, symbolizing the passage of time, the patience and faith involved in the healing process.
Every detail of Le Bonheur was created around the needs of children and their families. From the art on the walls to specialized technology, we’re prepared to care the special needs of children.
Branches, our hospital gift shop, is located in the Main Lobby. It’s the perfect place to pick up a gift while visiting a patient or order a gift when you can’t visit.
Our cafeteria – Le Bon Appetit – is located on the Lobby level of the hospital, near the Main Lobby. Across from the cafeteria, there is a deli and coffee bar with grab-and-go items.
We know waiting isn’t fun for kids, so we created an entertaining space for kids outside of the Lobby level Heart and Neurosciences Clinic. “Where the Wind Plays” has 40 aluminum and metal rotating flowers, a frog that kicks its legs, a butterfly with a 42-inch wingspan and a crawling caterpillar.
U.S. News & World Report ranks our institute among the top 25 children's neuroscience programs in the country. Our board-certified neuroscientists are specially-trained to treat kids with the most complex neurological conditions.
Our Heart Institute is ranked nationally by U.S. News & World Report as a top pediatric cardiology and heart surgery program. We have the experts, technology and facilities to care for patients with congenital heart defects from before birth to adulthood.
Our advanced diagnostic tools set Le Bonheur’s Neuroscience Institute apart. We’re one of a few children’s hospitals to use non-invasive magnetoencephalography (MEG) technology for functional brain imaging. These methods help our doctors and nurses look at the processes in a child’s brain. .
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive brain-mapping tool our physicians use to prepare for brain surgery. We are one of the first children’s hospitals using this technology in clinical care and research.
Our Clinical Neurosciences team uses High Density EEG in the diagnosis or evaluation of epilepsy. It records the electrical activity in the brain.
In our pediatric echocardiography (Echo) lab, our staff performs a special ultrasound that views the structure, size, and blood flow through the heart. Our lab is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).
The Le Bonheur Club Family Resource Center gives families the tools they need to better understand a diagnosis and access all of the hospital’s amenities. The center includes a computer area with reliable medical resources and business center.
The Family Resource Center also includes a library for children and adults and a place to relax. Our staff can help connect families to support groups and resources in the hospital and throughout the community.
Our chapel and quiet rooms provide families with a space for private prayer and reflection.
The Wishing Wall is a place where patients, families and friends can write down prayer requests or reflections. Our chaplains pray over the concerns.
Our chaplains are available to visit with your family to bring God's presence and spirit into the midst of difficult and uncertain times. They are available for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We perform exercise or stress tests to see if exercise causes problems with your child’s heart. Your child will exercise, and the heart will be monitored for changes.
Patients and families can enjoy a trip to the movies by visiting the Room of Magic. Located on the hospital’s Lobby Level, the movie theater has a 13-foot motorized screen with speakers built into the walls. The theater is designed to accommodate IV equipment, wheelchairs and other special needs of our patients.
