BALTIMORE (AP) - Doctors and patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore are moving into the hospital's new $1.1 billion building this weekend.

Hospital official Christina Lundquist says about 350 patients began moving into the two towers at the new complex on Sunday. 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 Sheikh Zayed Cardiovascular and Critical Care Tower. The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center, meanwhile, is designed exclusively for pediatric patients. It also features a collection of more than 500 works of art from 70 artists across the United States.

The patient move continues Monday and the new complex officially opens to the public on Tuesday.
