Grand New Hospital: A Work in Progress

01/30/2018

Construction at the site of the new SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital is well underway. The new replacement hospital and outpatient care facility are slated to open in September 2020.

The new hospital will feature more than 800,000 square feet of space, 316 private patient rooms, an expanded Level 1 trauma center and emergency department, larger intensive care units, increased parking for patients and healing gardens and green space. The site also includes areas for future expansion to meet patient, physician and student needs. 

The project occupies 15 acres adjacent to the current hospital off Grand Boulevard between Rutger and Lasalle streets. It is expected to total more than 2.2 million workforce construction hours and a peak workforce team of more than 600.

SSM Health and Saint Louis University entered into an expanded partnership in 2015. The health system has committed $550 million to the construction of the new hospital.
