Growth of Our Department’s Clinical Space

Date: December 2, 2014


We are very pleased to announce that we have expanded our department’s clinical space in the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, allowing us to provide even better care to our pediatric otolaryngology and otology patients. This aligns well with our focus on patient- and family-centered care and our planned faculty expansion in the Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology.

Building on our existing 21 treatment rooms, we now have an additional eight specialty-equipped rooms. These added rooms will allow us to create two separate and spacious waiting rooms for pediatric otolaryngology and otology patients and gives each provider access to additional specialty-specific examination rooms. An increase in space will streamline the process of getting patients to rooms and promote efforts to improve efficiency. This space also comes with new, state-of-the-art equipment, including eight microscopes, doubling what we currently have. We will also receive four additional endoscopic towers, a 50 percent increase over our existing set.

The clinic expansion for these services will now allow us to move forward with a second phase of clinic renovation with creation of service-specific clinics for head and neck surgery, rhinology and sinus surgery, and the Johns Hopkins Voice Center.

This expansion is an example of the tremendous growth taking place throughout our department and across Johns Hopkins Medicine. Growing to fit our patients’ needs is just one of the ways we strive to maintain outstanding patient care.
