The University of South Alabama Children's & Women's Hospital dedicated a new, 195,000-square-foot expansion  on Sept. 12, 2013 and completed the expansion project in the summer of 2014. The $72.6 million expansion, funded by the USA Health System, the USA Foundation and private gifts, features more space for the hospital's neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, additional operating rooms, and larger patient rooms to better accommodate visitors and families. Vital support services such as an enlarged cafeteria and kitchen, and professional teaching and community education space are also included in the five-level expansion. Two "family rooms" have been created by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile Inc.
