Rady Children's $1.4 Billion Healthcare Transformation
On August 29th, Rady Children's Hospital of San Diego marked a historic moment as it broke ground on its most ambitious construction project to date. This project, the largest in the hospital's 70-year history, spans seven stories and covers an impressive 500,000 square feet. The Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Services Pavilion come with a substantial estimated development cost of $1.2 - $1.4 Billion, and a significant portion of these construction expenses is being generously supported by the $200 million pledge made by Ernest and Evelyn Rady in 2019.
Anticipated for delivery in 2027, this cutting-edge structure will not only feature a brand-new emergency department but also house advanced pediatric, neonatal, and cardiac intensive care units, alongside state-of-the-art operating rooms. With 140 intensive care unit beds and four operating rooms, it's set to nearly double the capacity of the current emergency department, expanding from 46 to an impressive 86 rooms. Moreover, this facility will also enhance its commitment to providing behavioral health services. Rady Children's Hospital's groundbreaking project represents a significant leap forward in healthcare infrastructure.
