LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., is planning a $95.4 million expansion project that will extend the west side of the hospital.
The four-story, 128,575-square-foot addition will support an expansion of the neonatal intensive care unit, bringing 14 new beds to the existing 60-bed unit, and include eight additional surgery recovery bays. Twelve existing beds will also be converted to critical care use to ease capacity needs during construction.
The project will also bring additional beds to the Heart Institute. Ten cardiovascular intensive care unit beds will be added to the existing 10-bed unit, and space will be added for an 11-bed step-down cardiac unit. A new MRI-guided catheterization lab is planned for a total of three catheterization labs.
