Massive renovation coming to Philly hospital
Whether you need it or not, well-respected, convenient health care is integral to a city's quality of life and reputation. Just the knowledge that you or a loved one will receive top-notch service in the case of an emergency or ailment can help you rest easy and be glad you live in a metro that looks after its residents. People who buy one of the houses for sale in Philadelphia, PA, will be happy to learn that one of the most respected hospitals in the region is planning a major overhaul to improve service.
A planned $110 million renovation to the St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in North Philadelphia will greatly increase the number of patients and level of care the facility can provide, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal. The centerpiece of the restoration, which will be funded and overseen by Tenet Healthcare, will be a four-floor 135,000-square-foot critical-care tower with 50 new beds and 60 neonatal care units.
"This expansion will significantly increase our ability to treat critically ill children with the most advanced technology possible and will create over 300 new jobs that will help support the local economy," Carolyn Jackson, CEO of the hospital, told the news source.
