New kids’ hospital in Pittsburgh aims to please
Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh opened in 1890 with just 15 beds, and grew over the years into a large, renowned teaching hospital with more than 260 beds. In 2009, the hospital takes another big step forward with a two-mile move from its old hospital complex into a new $625 million medical campus currently under construction. Hospital leaders say the 10-acre campus , which includes a 900,000-square-foot hospital and 300,000-square-foot research center, is being built around putting families first, improving quality, taking advantage of all the latest technology, and enhancing research.
