Work to begin on Detroit Medical Center’s pediatrics tower – The Oakland Press
DETROIT (AP) â€” Work is set to begin on the new six-story pediatrics tower at the Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Michigan in downtown Detroit.
The 248,800 square-foot structure will include expanded pediatric and neonatal care units, a pediatric emergency department and expanded surgical facilities for transplants, neurosurgery and other procedures. Hospital officials believe the expansion will make the Detroit Medical Center, which houses the childrenâ€™s hospital, one of the nationâ€™s top facilities for treating seriously ill children.
Detroit Medical Center CEO Joseph Mullany tells The Detroit News that the project will bring it on par with childrenâ€™s hospitals in Philadelphia and Boston.
Construction of the pediatrics tower is expected to begin Tuesday and wrap up in early 2017.
