In mid-February, it was announced that construction will begin on a new hospital tower for the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.  This project will cost $120 million, and will replaced the now demolished Bingham parking structure.

This new construction will kick off the beginning of the medical center’s multi-phase plan to reconstruct the nonprofit hospital.  70 high-tech neonatal intensive care units, an additional 24 beds, and added square footage to it’s current pediatric intensive care units will be part of the new 5 story tower.  This addition will increase the overall square footage from 10,000 square feet to 50,000.

The new tower will also provide space for training Hawaii’s up-and-coming health care professionals.  The project is expected to be finished spring of 2016, and opening later in fall 2016.

President of Kapiolani Health Foundation, Michale Robinson, says that funding for the first phase has been offset by a $30 million campaign which is approaching the finish line.

According to President Robinson, there has been incredible support from all areas of the community, and the project is on track to reach it’s $30 million goal to support the costs of this construction.  He also adds that this campaign demonstrates the philanthropic commitment of Hawaii’s community in guaranteeing access to health care for all of Hawaii’s most critically ill children.

Phase two of the project has not been given a time frame as of now.  But phase two includes adding two hospital towers- providing further space, building an additional parking structure, and renovating the Bingham building.  Following the complete expansion, the entire non-profit hospital will increase to 450,000 square feet.

The entire nonprofit hospital will grow into 450,000 of square feet following the entire expansion.
