WakeMed has opened a new, $99 million tower that houses Raleigh, NC's first children's hospital. The four-story building also adds 41 rooms for cardiovascular care and 20 cardiac intensive care beds. WakeMed's expansion is the latest in a string of major construction projects at Raleigh-area hospitals. Last year, UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill opened a $207 million cancer center and announced plans to build a new hospital in Hillsborough. And Duke University Medical Center is in the midst of a $700 million building campaign that will add a cancer center and main hospital pavilion.
