The 4-floor vertical expansion will include 2 built-out floors of universal pediatric patient rooms, 2 shell floors for future patient rooms, and various renovations to the existing building to support the additional bed capacity. The project will advance the size and scope of the hospital’s comprehensive array of specialty and subspecialty pediatric health care programs, and includes:

• 160,000 SF addition, with capacity for 152 inpatient beds
• “Universal” inpatient units and patient rooms to allow flexibility between NICU, PICU, and acute care patient populations

This complex project will require construction above and within the existing hospital, which will remain operational throughout construction. Renovations to the existing building include:

• A new communicating stair and 2 visitor elevators
• Relocations of multiple administrative programs
• Expansion of support services including kitchen, formula prep, and pharmacy
• Infrastructure enhancements to increase capacity and minimize energy consumption (LEED Gold anticipated)
