Cincinnati Children’s plans major expansion

For years, Cincinnati Children’s has met the needs of more and more families by creatively adding space and beds within existing buildings on our Burnet campus and expanding at College Hill and Liberty campuses.  But now, there is a need for additional physical space at the main hospital in Avondale to continue to provide the best care for our patients, and to provide support space for families and staff.

Cincinnati Children’s plans to start construction on a new patient care facility in the fall 2017. After considering many possible locations for this new building, the board of trustees has approved a plan to expand North.  This expansion will require a re-route of Erkenbrecher Avenue connecting to Hearne Avenue, around the Ronald McDonald House. The new building will be 7 stories tall and will expand the number and size of patient rooms; expand pharmacy, lab space, kitchens, and cafeteria facilities; and add family rooms and respite space for staff.
