Medical University of South Carolina has broken ground on the $385M Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion in South Carolina.
The 10-storey project will include paediatric procedural-surgical capacities, including rooms for bronchoscopy, endoscopy, surgery and interventional radiology.
The development will include a dedicated floor for the care of children with cancer and a comprehensive paediatric heart centre.
It will also feature two obstetrical operating rooms, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with 82 private rooms, and an advanced fetal care centre.
Medical University of South Carolina’s president David Cole said: “We awarded degrees to more students than ever before, and are on pace to bring in more than $250M in sponsored research funding.”
The development is scheduled to open in 2019.
