The Medical University of South Carolina, in Charleston, S.C., has opened its $389 million children’s hospital after 17 years of planning and construction, according to an article in the Post and Courier.

The 11-story, 650,000-square-foot Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion features an 82-bed neonatal intensive care unit, 36 mother-baby rooms, and 17 labor and delivery rooms. The facility also has a floor dedicated to caring for pediatric cancer patients and another dedicated to the care of children with heart problems; an advanced fetal care center; and a dedicated elevator for transporting mothers in labor from the hospital’s entrance directly to the fourth-floor maternity pavilion.

The project design team included architecture firm Perkins+Will and the construction management team of Robins & Morton, Cumming, and Brownstone Construction.

Each floor features art that reflects on the Lowcountry, a geographic and cultural region along South Carolina’s coast. The public lobby on the main floor features artwork measuring 26 feet wide by 23 feet tall and runs along the main lobby floor wall to the stairway. A second piece can be found on the stairwell of the ground floor.
