Delaware's federal delegation gathers to announce federal funding for the new pediatric intensive care unit at A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children.

Congressman Mike Castle and Senators Tom Carper and Ted KAUFMAN announced the federal appropriation of $350,000 to be put towards the $250 million upgrade.

A.I. DuPont C-E-O Tom Ferry says the expansion is necessary to ensure the hospital can continue to provide quality care.

The new five-story patient tower will have private rooms with sleeping accommodations for parents. It's expected to open in 2013.
