Hospital Expansion: Opening October 2014


Why We Expanded Our Hospital

We talked to parents and listened to children to find out what they would wish for most in a hospital. We asked our caregivers what would help them continue to deliver the very best care. These thoughts and ideas helped inspire the design of what is now our new space — an environment to promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing of children.

We've created a children's hospital like no other in the region, giving our patients and families the promise of even better days to come.
