Construction of the new $230 million, 355,000 square-foot addition completed in late 2012. The 10-story facility connects to the existing hospital on the north face of the outpatient building and the east face of the hospital building. The new East Tower initially adds 94 beds to Children’s, with later expansion available in five floors of shelled space in order to reach a capacity of 500 beds for Children’s Hospital and is home to the cancer care, heart and rehabilitation medicine center. The tower also includes a first-in-the-nation center dedicated to expectant mothers whose babies display life-threatening anomalies in the womb.
The East Tower is currently LEED-registered under the U.S. Green Building Council and designed with the aim to reduce or eliminate toxic materials and emissions; increase worker safety and productivity; and be more cost effective by reducing operating costs.
KHS&S completed the exterior framing and sheathing as well as the interior drywall and acoustical ceilings.
