Construction continues on the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, scheduled to open in 2003. The hospital will have eight floors, including a grand lobby and large patient rooms. Patient rooms will be clustered in neighborhoods of 12 rooms, with family areas located on each floor. Colorful graphics on the floor and walls will provide a unique environment for children. The hospital will also house the Junior League Family Resource Center, a performance area, food court and retail stores. (photos by Dana Johnson)
