Doctors and patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore are moving into the hospital's new $1.1 billion building.

Approximately 350 patients began moving into the two towers at the new complex yesterday. One tower houses an adult care center and the other is home to a new children's center.

Transplant surgery, trauma care, labor and delivery are among the services that will be offered at The Zayed Cardiovascular and Critical Care Tower. The other tower, known as the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center, is designed exclusively for pediatric patients. It also features a collection of more than 500 works of art from 70 artists across the U.S.

The move continues today, and the new complex officially opens to the public Tuesday.
