Behavioral Health Pavilion
Nationwide Children’s Hospital
Columbus, Ohio

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is one of America’s largest pediatric health care and research centers. This new $125 million comprehensive behavioral health building will allow Nationwide to significantly expand their provision of mental health services at a standard for which they are known nationally. The facility will serve pediatric patients from young children through teens and offer a full range of services including an emergency department, inpatient care, partial hospitalization, intensive and conventional outpatient services, and integrated research.

The Behavioral Health Pavilion is a 9 story building located in Nationwide’s existing urban health care campus. The services are organized to accommodate the most urgent needs closest to building access points with inpatient units on upper floors to take advantage of neighborhood views. A penthouse play yard serves the units and creates a beacon for recovery within the city.

The Pavilion’s interior design is consistent with the Nationwide brand and presents a cheerful yet soothing environment that this healthcare provider is known for. A rich offering of family amenities and supports are found on the 5th floor co-located with generous rooftop courtyards. The inpatient units provide safe and calming living space appropriate for children with acute mental health and severe behavioral conditions.
