New Buildings at The Johns Hopkins Hospital
The new 1.6 million-square-foot complex was one of the largest hospital construction projects in the nation. It marks a new era in patient care at Johns Hopkins. It features two 12-story towers: The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center, named in honor of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s late mother, and the Sheikh Zayed Tower, named to honor the first president and founder of the United Arab Emirates. There are 560 all-private patient rooms, 33 state-of-the-art operating rooms, and expansive new adult and pediatric emergency departments.
For more than a century, patients have come from around the corner and around the world to receive the most advanced care at Hopkins, the place where modern medicine was born. Patients and their families will now experience a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility designed from the ground up to house the most innovative and advanced medical technologies and also provide a cheerful, welcoming environment for patient-centered care.
