The tower will house a neonatal intensive care unit, labor and postpartum departments and an expanded trauma center. The tower is part of a $215 million expansion that includes parking and renovations to meet state earthquake-resistance standards.

The trauma center will increase the number of beds by 51 percent. The building is expected to open next year.
