WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita hospital is beginning work this fall on a $28 million renovation of its pediatric area.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1JHsSpu ) reports that Wesley Medical Center unveiled its Children’s Hospital logo at a symbolic groundbreaking event Wednesday. The actual renovation won’t start until around September.
Work includes updating facades and revamping rooms so each one will have a TV, computer, Xbox, games and a Murphy bed to pull down for family members to spend the night.
The pediatric unit will have 30 rooms, the same number as in the current facility, but the intensive care unit will gain three beds from its current 12-bed layout. Wesley hopes to finish the project by fall 2016.
