The new, $186 million Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia inpatient facility in King of Prussia, being built by Skanska USA Building, may be increasing the number of beds due to increasing demands. Construction began in September 2019 and is scheduled to complete in December 2021.

From The Philadelphia Inquirer:

When the hospital revealed it would build the inpatient facility last year, it intended to install 52 beds, 16 of which would be for pediatric intensive care. Now, considering the prospective demand at the new facility, [Madeline Bell, president and chief executive of CHOP,] said there could be as many as 108 beds, the maximum allowed amount. …

The 250,000-square-foot, seven-floor hospital will be the center of its medical complex in King of Prussia, which has had a busy outpatient center since 2015.
