South Pavilion Moving Day a Success
In the fall of 2009, 68 babies and 17 high-risk pregnant women were successfully moved into our newest addition, the South Pavilion, which features the nation's largest single family room NICU and a 30-bed Antenatal Unit.
Architecture Speaks Volumes
The South Pavilion at Women & Infants is five levels of brick, steel and mortar, but tells a story that is living and breathing. It is the story of life - preserving and enhancing it, and reveling in its miraculous nature. It is the story of compassion and tenderness, of peering into tiny faces or marveling at the courage of women who defy medical circumstances to deliver a baby, and saying, "This is why we do what we do."

Going Green at the South Pavilion
The South Pavilion represents a new era in construction – one in which sustainability is as important as being on time and under budget. Women & Infants was one of the first hospitals in the Northeast to open a "green" building. In 2010, the new addition achieved gold certification through the U.S. Green Building Council through its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program and in 2013 was named one of the 50 Greenest Hospitals in America.
