|USA Children's and Women's Hospital Expansion Completed|
|The University of South Alabama Children's and Women's Hospital dedicated a new, five-level, 195,000-square-foot expansion on Sept. 12, 2013 and completed the finishing touches on the 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 include an enlarged cafeteria and kitchen as well as professional teaching and community education space. Two family rooms have been created by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile Inc. More photos of the expansion can be seen here and here.|
