Our new 500,000-square-foot children’s tower completes an entire city block dedicated to caring for kids.
Connected to our award-winning outpatient Children’s Pavilion, the new tower will house emergency, trauma and inpatient care. The new facility connects the wonders of childhood with the wonders of modern medicine.
