Children’s Hospital New Orleans Celebrates Grand Opening of $300M Campus Expansion

Children’s Hospital New Orleans, along with its donors, community supporters, medical school partners, staff and providers, recently celebrated the grand opening of the hospital’s expanded campus, as its $30-million campus transformation reaches completion.

In 2017, Children’s Hospital broke ground on the most significant expansion project in the hospital’s history. The campus transformation effort brings together infrastructure, technology and unmatched expertise to deliver a healthier, happier future for Louisiana’s children.

The expanded campus includes 230,000+ square feet of new clinical care space, enabling the growth of signature services including heart care, cancer care, surgical and emergency services, along with a new freestanding behavioral health center. Enhanced by family housing, gardens, playgrounds and green space, Children’s Hospital’s expanded campus delivers unmatched patient- and family centered care, with an extraordinary experience.

The hospital’s architects at EYP and construction partners at Lemoine were integral to the campus expansion effort. EYP took a complex concept and developed that into an exceptional master plan, inspired by the healing power of nature and music, that poises Children’s Hospital for its next chapter. This came with careful planning, a robust understanding of pediatric healthcare and collaboration.

Lemoine led the 1,400+ day construction effort, with more than 3,500 professionals working throughout the project. While expanding the hospital’s footprint by more than 50%, the construction team kept quality, safety and excellence at the forefront while the hospital continued to provide expert care for children without interruption.
