CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Board of Trustees says the cost of the new Children's Hospital at MUSC is going up but that won't slow down the process. 

The hospital is still on track to open in 2019.

Officials say the new hospital is now budgeted at $385 million about $35 million more than original estimate. 

A spokesperson says building costs have increased since the original estimate was made. 

Right now the hospital has raised close to $77 million.

Plans for the Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital will be finalized in April of next year.
