The latest wave of people to tour Shodair Children’s Hospital arrived early Thursday to see the $66 million campus that will be its new vessel to serve as a psychiatric facility for children.

Brad Culver of Nitro-Green said at the end of the tour of the 134,000-square-foot building at 2755 Colonial Drive that he found the new digs to be interesting and added he was impressed with all the steps Shodair officials took to make it a safe place where children can’t hurt themselves.

The new hospital is set to open Jan. 31.

Culver said he was impressed Shodair brought in children to help them with some issues in the design process.

Shodair is putting the finishing touches on its new campus. Its services include the child and adolescent acute psychiatric inpatient program, child and adolescent residential treatment programs, a fully accredited school which will operate year-round, outpatient services and school-based services.
