$28M children's hospital planned for Savannah

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Plans are under way to build a new $28 million children's hospital in Savannah.

The Savannah Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1kjag0j ) the children's hospital will be built on the campus of the coastal Georgia city's Memorial University Medical Center.

Its parent company, Memorial Health, says the children's hospital is being established in partnership with North Carolina-based Novant Health.

Memorial Health president and CEO Maggie Gill says the four-year project will replace the children's wing on the second and third floor of the main hospital with a stand-alone building. She says the new children's hospital will offer 20 subspecialties in pediatric care.
