The Children’s Hospital has begun the construction of a 10-story 350,000-square-foot addition. The $230 million expansion of a new patient tower initially will have 124 beds, with two floors of shelled space for additional future beds, bringing the total number of patient beds at Children’s to around 500 upon full completion. The expansion also is expected to bring approximately 500 new jobs to the hospital’s workforce. Children’s anticipates admitting patients in the LEED-certified tower beginning in late 2012. “When we planned and built the new hospital, we knew the community would embrace this new facility. As a not for profit hospital, we moved forward with caution and conviction and have found that more families than ever want to use our facility,” says Jim Shmerling, president and CEO of the Children’s Hospital.
