Penn State children's hospital plans $148M expansion

Penn State Hershey (Pa.) Children's Hospital plans to embark on a $148 million expansion project, according to Penn Live.

The proposal, which still needs final approval from the Penn State Board of Trustees, calls for a three-floor expansion. 

With the added floors, the hospital will be eight stories. The new floors will house a maternity ward, post-partum patient rooms, an 18-bed pediatric acute care unit and a neonatal intensive care unit. In addition, the project will renovate the hospital's existing fifth floor to provide another 14 pediatric patient rooms. All together the project will add about 100 beds to the hospital.

If the project receives final approval, construction will begin in spring 2018, with an expected completion date in fall 2020.
