Connecticut Children’s medical center in Hartford, Conn., broke ground on 190,000-square-foot clinical tower. (For more on Connecticut Children’s go here.)

Expected to open in late 2025, the new tower will connect to the existing medical center and serve as a new front gateway for the children’s hospital.

The facility will house 50 private neonatal intensive care units (ICUs), a fetal care center with holistic labor and delivery services, and an advanced gene therapy unit for bone marrow and liquid radiation treatments.

The care spaces in the tower are designed to flex as care needs change into the future, including a 14-bed acuity unit.

Each inpatient floor will also house an open-air terrace for fresh air and respite.
