Expansion of state’s only Children’s Hospital underway

Cheers, confetti and a plan for the next era of children’s health care in Mississippi filled the December 1 groundbreaking ceremony for a new pediatrics tower. Construction has now started on the $180 million seven-story, 340,000-square-foot facility, which will include new space for neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, more operating suites, a pediatric imaging center and a new lobby with additional elevators. A pediatric outpatient specialty clinic is also part of the project. For more information about this transformative project, click here.
