All Children's Hospital, St. Petersburg, Fla., is planning to build a new hospital or renovate its existing 216-bed facility in a major expansion within the next year, hospital spokeswoman Ann Miller said. The project will increase the number of private rooms available and cost at least $50 million, but "final details are not nailed down yet," Miller said. The hospital is expected to announce further details Jan. 21. Most of All Children's rooms are shared. The project also will involve neighboring 412-bed Bayfront Medical Center, which plans to lease space from All Children's for maternity and nursery services. -- by Patrick Reilly
