This Week in Temple History
September 1, 1994
   The University cleared the last obstacle in the way of its plans to build Temple Children’s Medical Center, receiving City Council’s approval for zoning changes at the site on North Broad Street between Venango and Tioga streets.
   Temple broke ground in October 1994, and the $39 million facility opened in 1998 with 60 beds, since increased to 74. The hospital also brought the Shriners Hospital for Children, a longtime Temple partner, into its fold. The Shriners Hospital had sought to move from its home on Roosevelt Boulevard.
