NEWARK, DEL. — Skanska USA will build a $178 million Women and Children’s Health Building for Christiana Care Health System. The facility, to be located in Newark, is slated for completion in January 2020.

The eight-story, 387,500-square-foot facility will serve as an expansion to the existing labor, delivery and C-section facility on the Christiana campus. Skanska USA is the general contractor for the project. Work on the site has already begun.

The building will feature a neonatal intensive-care unit with private rooms and sleep-in space for families; new and expanded labor and delivery suites; a new labor lounge; private rooms for families after delivery; an expanded triage area; separate admitting and discharge areas; and a continuing care nursery for babies born with health issues.

The facility will also offer lab, pharmacy and dietary clinical and support services. The project will also include the expansion of an existing four-level parking garage

“Together with Christiana Care Health System and HKS Architects, we will complete a major expansion that provides the Christiana Medical Staff with the resources and space that is required to deliver the highest quality care to patients and their families,” says Ed Szwarc, executive vice president and general manager for New York-based Skanska USA, a developer and builder.
