Children’s Hospital completes $155M new hospital facilities

DETROIT (AP) — Children’s Hospital of Michigan has completed its new hospital facilities after nearly three years of construction.

The six-story, $155 million Detroit facility includes a family-friendly main entrance, a ground-level emergency department, as well as expanded neonatal, pediatric and cardiac intensive care units with private rooms. Included in the construction is an updated surgery department and renovated operating rooms.

Luanne Thomas Ewald, CEO of Children’s Hospital of Michigan, says in a statement that it’s a “brand new healing environment to support kids and their families.”

The existing hospital building to which the new critical care tower and lobby are attached was constructed in 1971 and was considered a state-of-the-art hospital for children.

The hospital is part of the Detroit Medical Center .
