Children’s Hospital New Orleans recently opened its expanded campus. The $300 million renovation began in 2017 and brings together infrastructure, technology and expertise.

"Today, we celebrate the completion of the $300 million transformation of our campus, an unprecedented investment in child health for Louisiana and the Gulf South," says John R. Nickens IV, president and chief executive officer of Children's Hospital New Orleans.

The expanded campus includes more than 230,000 square feet of new clinical care space, enabling the growth of signature services, including heart care, cancer care, surgical and emergency services, along with a new, free-standing Behavioral Health Center. Enhanced by family housing, gardens, playgrounds, and green space, Children's Hospital's expanded campus delivers patient and family-centered care.

Lemoine led the 1,400-day construction effort, with more than 3,500 professionals working throughout the project. While expanding the hospital's footprint by more than 50 percent, the construction team kept quality, safety, and excellence at the forefront while the hospital continued to provide expert care for kids without interruption.
