On June 20, 2012, Nationwide Children’s Hospital opened its doors to a new, 12-story main hospital. Nearly four years after breaking ground, this state-of-the-art facility is part of the largest pediatric expansion project in U.S. history.

With more than one million patients expected to walk through its doors in 2012, Nationwide Children’s has achieved unprecedented growth and success resulting in the need for expanded and enhanced services for the patients and families it serves.
