Thousands get first look at University of Iowa's $360M children's hospital

Iowa City-based University of Iowa Children's Hospital opened doors to its new 14-story complex for thousands to tour before its Dec. 10 opening, reports The Gazette.

Construction on the $360 million, 507,000-square-foot facility began four years ago. The hospital contains 134 patient beds and 49 neonatal beds. Other amenities include fish tanks, wall art, a library, a video game center, space for movies and rainbow lights decorating the facility, according to the report.   

The hospital ran a practice transfer of about 100 patients to the facility in October, and will run another practice drill Nov. 19.
