GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- DeVos Children's Hospital is just two-years-old, but they're already asking the state for permission to expand.

This week, Spectrum Health asked state regulators for a ten-million dollar certificate of need that would cover development of the fifth floor, which is currently unused.  Most of the space will be used for patient rooms.

The project will also include renovating two floors of Butterworth Hospital, with those improvements designed to aid women's health services.
