Change of date for move-in/opening of UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital
In evaluating the progress to date, we determined that we are close, but not quite ready, to move into the new children’s hospital. The safety and comfort of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority—which is why we have decided to postpone the move-in and opening.
We weighed this decision carefully, recognizing the outstanding efforts by the crews working around the clock as well as our staff members who have been involved in planning and coordinating the move-in and opening. We truly appreciate your commitment, and we thank you for your dedication to this project.
Although we are disappointed that we will not open on Dec. 10, we believe a late January/early February move-in and opening will provide the safest environment and smoothest transition for everyone involved.
We will announce a new opening date in the next few weeks. Thank you for your continued support.
