Private patient rooms, advanced medical technology, and added space for clinical services, medical research, and training and education – all are benefits of the Packard Children’s expansion project, which promises to transform care for children and families. The new, environmentally friendly facility, surrounded by nearly four acres of gardens and green space, will open in 2016.

Fun Facts:

  • More than 20,000 truckloads of soil have been removed from the site 
  • Nearly 2,350 cubic yards of concrete were poured to construct a new utilities tunnel 
  • More than 200 pilings are already in place for the building foundation
