Children’s Hospital of Alabama seeks OK for half-billion dollar expansion

Birmingham News, July 10, 2008

Children's Hospital of Alabama has filed paperwork with the State Health Planning and Development Agency to seek permission to replace the heart of its medical center as part of an almost half-billion-dollar modernization and expansion. Children's Hospital officials said a new main hospital is needed to replace an outdated building that lacks space for technology and patient growth. Officials want a license to operate a 332-bed medical center, according to the certificate of need application.
