The State of Alabama recently committed $500,000 to the renovation and expansion of the Pediatric Emergency Center at USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Mobile. This brings the state’s investment in the project to $1 million. Plans for the expansion will double the current emergency department from 9,000 to nearly 19,000 ft2 and expand treatment areas from 14 to more than 30. The project will also create two behavioral health rooms and a sensory room to enhance care for patients with specialized needs. The initial estimated cost of the renovation, construction and equipment for the project is $15 million. With the most recent state appropriation, USA Health has raised more than $10 million through donations. The project will take approximately two years to complete, after receiving state approval. USA Health is appearing before the Certificate of Need Review Board on June 16 to pursue that approval.
