New hospital construction updates

St. Louis replacement hospital

The planned facility, located on 3.75 acres at the corner of Clayton and Newstead on the BJC HealthCare campus, will replace the current 50-year-old hospital located in Frontenac.This will be the third facility for Shriners Hospitals for Children in St. Louis since opening in 1924. Plans for the new 90,000 square foot hospital include 12 inpatient beds, three surgical suites, and 18 clinic examination rooms. It also features enhanced space for its clinical research center for metabolic bone diseases and more room for same-day surgery patients. Other additions to benefit patients are nine rooms for outpatient family housing, a state of the art interactive and educational activity area and dedicated space for collaborative research with Washington University scientists.
