Texas Children’s Hospital is an internationally recognized full-care pediatric hospital located in the Texas Medical Center in Houston. One of the largest pediatric hospitals in the U.S., the hospital is dedicated to providing the finest possible pediatric patient care, education, and research.
In 2006, local Aircuity representative, Vicon Equipment, introduced Texas Children’s to Aircuity. They initially chose to implement the Aircuity platform to improve energy efficiency in its newly developed Feigin Center, an eight-story vertical expansion project, specifically designed for the advancement of pediatric medicine. The expansion added 200,000 square feet of space for research labs, clinical research offices, GMP space for gene therapies, a simulation center, expanded vivarium along with an animal imaging center, and earned Texas Children’s Hospital an honorable mention in R&D magazine’s 2010 Laboratory of the Year competition.
