Children’s Hospital’s $225 million campus expansion and upgrade kicked off recently, the first phase of which is a new parking garage.
The new expansion expands the current medical complex to the old New Orleans Adolescent Hospital campus, an adjacent 17-acre site it purchased in 2014.
The first phase includes renovating historic structures, demolishing six others, building an 600-car parking garage, a new 267,000 square-foot critical-care building, and a new $2 million “The House That Hogs Built”, a facility for families whose children are in surgery at the hospital. The expansion will create a new cancer center with inpatient and outpatient services, new critical care facilities, the new parking garage and an elevated walkway across Henry Clay Avenue to connect the two campuses.
