The David M. Rubenstein Child Health Building at Hopkins Children’s houses many of the original pediatric specialty clinics that Hopkins opened nearly a century ago. These include the pediatric cardiology clinic, in which cardiologist Helen Taussig so famously developed the idea for the Blue Baby surgery, and the Harriet Lane Clinic, named for the woman whose bequeath in the early 20th century led to the creation of Hopkins Children’s.
Parking is provided for patients on the lower level (Level 1) in the Orleans Street Garage.
