Bethesda, Md—The Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which opened to patients in April, is a technological marvel with a human heart.

The Hatfield Center adjoins the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center, which opened in 1953. These two buildings, plus an ambulatory care research facility, constitute the NIH Clinical Center. Among federal buildings, the Clinical Center is second in size only to the Pentagon.
