Phoenix Children's Hospital deployed diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring and informatics solutions from Royal Philips in its emergency department and Level 1 pediatric trauma center, which opened Sept. 20.

The technologies at the $40 million, 42,000-square-foot ED include imaging systems in computed tomography, digital radiology and ultrasound, along with monitors that enable clinicians to view lab results from a patient's bedside.

The collaboration builds on Phoenix Children's Hospital's 15-year strategic agreement with Philips to improve patient and staff experience.

"Phoenix Children's ED and trauma center is one of the busiest pediatric centers nationwide, which made it very important for them to gather insights from clinical teams while researching usage and workflow," said Brent Shafer, CEO of Philips North America.
