Dr.Jim Nataro, the Director of Children’s Services, says current care is provided in a general setting at the main hospital. But Nataro says the Battle Building is totally dedicated to kids. Features include a storytelling theme with each floor having art displays from children’s classics such as Curious George and Harry Potter. Every floor also has a play center and an outdoor landscape area commemorating the Lewis and Clark expedition with sculptures of animals seen by the explorers.
