Skanska USA recently celebrated the topping out of the new Center for Women and Children’s Health building at Christiana Care Health System in Newark, Delaware.
The eight-story, 388,000-square-foot expansion will include a replacement neonatal intensive care unit featuring private rooms with sleep-in space for families; new and expanded labor and delivery suites, including a new labor lounge; private rooms for families after delivery; an expanded triage area; separate admitting and discharge areas and a continuing care nursery for babies born with special healthcare needs.
Slated for completion in January 2020, the new expansion is located on the Christiana Hospital campus. This new complex will also feature clinical and logistical support services such as lab, pharmacy and dietary. In addition, the expansion includes a four-level parking garage for patients and visitors near the hospital’s main entrance.
