Construction is underway at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for a four-floor expansion. The renovations will advance the size and scope of the hospital’s comprehensive array of specialty and subspecialty pediatric health care programs.

Big Machine Records executives Scott Borchetta and Sandi Spika Borchetta joined Tiffany Fallon Rooney and Allison DeMarcus at an event on Tuesday (Sept. 20) for the hospital’s “Growing to New Heights” campaign, a fundraising effort that will help cover the total construction cost of more than $100 million. DeMarcus is chair of the Children’s Hospital board.

Rascal Flatts has been a champion and benefactor of the hospital for many years. Tiffany Fallon Rooney is married to band member Joe Don Rooney; Allison DeMarcus’ husband is band member Jay DeMarcus. When Rascal Flatts’ donations reached $3 million in 2014, the hospital named its pediatric surgery unit after the band. Since 2005, the group has raised $4 million for the hospital.

The additional space will be built over a 30-month period to provide the necessary square footage to meet the future health care needs of the children and families from Tennessee, the surrounding region and across the nation.
