Telemedicine Command Center

In 2019, The Board of Visitors gifted  $1.3 million to build a virtual command center which provides 24-hour monitoring and care of the most critically-ill patients in the CICU and NICU at Children’s National Hospital. Similar to a “situation-room, ”  the Command Center uses technology to monitor and predict  outcomes, providing an additional resource to ensure better safety and end results. In addition to monitoring the patients within the Children’s National Hospital network,  this virtual center also provides local, national and international hospitals greater access to our highly-qualified medical specialists in order to save more children’s lives.
