Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh can proceed with its plan to build a four-story pediatric center in South Fayette.

On Wednesday night, the five members of the Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the hospital's site plan for its proposed $20.5 million center. The building will be constructed on property adjacent to the former Star City Cinema at 100 Hickory Grade Road. Children's will break ground on the project, called Children's South, in April, and the development should be finished by October 2014, said Mark O'Hern, executive director of ambulatory services and business development.

Lawrenceville-based Children's Hospital plans to relocate pediatric services that are at two sites in Bethel Park to one new building in South Fayette. Children's has outgrown its Bethel Park facilities, O'Hern said.
