ERIE, Pa. (KDKA) – Newborn babies at UPMC in Erie were all dressed up to celebrate a milestone in a hospital construction project.
UPMC shared photos of the babies on Twitter, saying their newest patients were dressed up as a construction project moves “one step closer to completion.”
The final steel beam for an $111 million patient tower was set on Tuesday. The seven-story building will be on East Second Street between the main hospital and Magee-Womens, UPMC Hamot.
The babies were wearing adorable crocheted construction hats and orange safety vests.
