Seattle Children’s Expansion - One Year In

April 05, 2011

On the one year anniversary of Seattle City Council’s approval of the Seattle Children’s expansion master plan, the initiative is well underway and progressing as planned. 

 

Building Hope: Cancer and Critical Care Expansion, the first phase of the expansion, is on schedule and expected to open for service in Spring 2013. Building Hope will incorporate an additional 121 new inpatient beds, including 80 single occupancy rooms for our cancer and Intensive Care Unit patients.

Recent milestones include:

Children’s is working with the Seneca Group, Sellen Construction, and ZGF Architects to ensure Building Hope meets the needs of patients, families, staff, and our community. Additional space will be built out over the next 20 years, as needed.
