The Section provides inpatient care at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center.  The Children's Hospital is a 194-bed tertiary care facility caring for children from across the state of Oklahoma.  Children's relocated to a completely renovated facility in 2007.  Renovation included construction of a pediatric gastroenterology laboratory outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment to perform flexible and capsule endoscopy, esophageal pH/impedance monitoring, and intravenous infusion of therapeutics.  The GI Laboratory has ample space for expansion of services.

The Department of Pediatrics continues to add to the greater than 110 faculty in 14 subspecialties.  The Department will move into a newly constructed 14-floor building in 2009. This child-friendly building will house general and subspecialty pediatric outpatient clinics, faculty offices, and an education center.
