Children Need Us. Children's Hospital Needs You.
When children get sick or injured, that's when the staff at Children's Hospital gets to do our best. We offer the specialized pediatric care that children need during these crucial times. Still, we can do more. And you can help.
"As pediatric medicine continues to evolve, so does our standard of care," said Keith Goodwin, President and CEO at Children's Hospital. "This will allow the hospital to continue to provide the highest level of care to our region's children. The project is about acknowledging the importance of families in the care we provide, improving the efficiency of care and ensuring that we have the opportunity to accommodate future growth."
The groundbreaking will be in the summer of 2014, and the building will take approximately two years to complete. Additional renovations will take another year with an expected completion date of fall 2017. The estimated cost for the project is $75 million, and while the hospital plans to pay for this largely with internal funds, Children's Hospital will look to the community for additional help.
