Connecticut Children's Initiates Phase II Construction of Health Facility in USA

Introduction:

Connecticut Children's Hospital has initiated the next phase of construction for a state-of-the-art health facility in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, with a budget of US$326 million.

Features: 

The project entails the construction of a 190,000-square-foot clinical tower on the hospital's front lawn, seamlessly connected to the existing medical center. 

The clinical tower will encompass two floors and house 50 private neonatal intensive care rooms, providing specialized care for newborns. Additionally, it will feature a fetal care center equipped with six labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms, facilitating comprehensive care for expectant mothers. The tower will also incorporate two dedicated operating rooms and an advanced gene therapy unit, facilitating procedures such as bone marrow transplants and liquid radiation treatments. Furthermore, a 14-bed adjustable acuity unit will be available to accommodate patients of varying levels of acuity. 

Inpatient levels will offer open-air terraces, serving as tranquil spaces for families and healthcare professionals to find respite. The facility will boast expanded cooking facilities, and cutting-edge meeting, and conference spaces, enhancing the educational aspect of the institution. Additionally, the health facility will house a pharmacy and a gift shop to cater to the needs of patients and visitors. 

The projected timeline for completing this project is set for late 2025.
