Diamond Children's Medical Center gets new lobby

Posted: Updated:

After 15 years of planning and a $15 million donation, the Diamond Children's Medical Center is finally a reality.

Wednesday night, hundreds of Tucsonans showed up for the dedication of the center's new lobby.

The center was a $55 million project. It has 134 beds, a NICU, PICU, hematology and oncology, medical and surgery floors.  There's also a toy store, a library, an interactive wall and anything that would make a sick child feel good.  Because too often, they don't.
