Birmingham mayor proposes up to $20 million tax boost for Children's Hospital expansion
Birmingham News, March 12, 2008
Children's Hospital could get as much as $20 million from the city of Birmingham toward its planned $450 million expansion through a development proposal announced by Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford. The hospital wants to build a facility just north of its current location that would house most of its 275 licensed beds, a much larger emergency department, operating rooms and other services. Children's also plans to ask the state for more licensed beds as part of the Certificate of Need application the hospital will file with state health regulators in the next few months.
