Children's Hospital of Wisconsin design not kid stuff

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, October 7, 2008

A new construction project at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin shows that the advances in medicine also apply to buildings. Children's Hospital’s $165.9 million tower, its third major expansion since 1988, initially will add 58 beds. But the tower includes two floors of space for an additional 72 beds when needed. The size and design of the patients' rooms in the hospital’s new tower are just one example of the advances: The rooms, designed for one patient and family, will be larger than those in the original hospital built 20 years ago.
