Datasource: Time lapse of expansion construction      

We are excited to meet the needs of our community by expanding to add four floors to our existing building. However, we know this can be inconvenient to our patients and families and the sounds of construction can be challenging at times.

While you are here receiving care, we are working hard to try to reduce the level of noise from construction equipment.

The scheduled time of construction during the week is 8 am to 5:30 pm. This timeframe may change, and we will do our best to communicate any changes with you.

The expansion will feature floors/areas dedicated to:

  • Heart Institute, including a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU)
  • Cardiac procedure rooms
  • Post-anesthesia cardiac unit
  • Medical/Surgical
  • Rehabilitation unit with gym
  • Intensive Care Unit
  • Intermediate care
  • Spaces for patients and families including:
    • Play area
    • Classroom
    • Dining room
    • Teen room
    • Family lounge
    • Fitness room
    • Interactive TV room
    • Beauty salon and spa

This project will ensure that we remain qualified to treat the most complex and critical conditions, so that our children will have access to high-quality care close to home.

During construction, please reach out to your Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital team and let us know how we can help you. We will do our best to work with you to make any possible accommodations. We welcome any recommendations and feedback. We are in this together!
