JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (May 7, 2012) - Work is now under way on the new replacement hospital for St. Mary’s Health Center
and you can follow the progress with a new construction camera.

The new $200 million facility will be located along Highway 179 and Mission Drive and is set to open in January 2015. An official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 18, at the construction site.
The new hospital, which will have 167 all-private rooms within its 375,000 square feet, will be set amid a beautiful natural landscape of wooded hills. Its outpatient and interventional services will be clustered together for the convenience of patients.
And it will be be the most expensive construction project Jefferson City has ever seen, providing an economic benefit to the local economy.
Said Bev Stafford, St. Mary’s director of development: "When the new St. Mary’s opens, we’ll be prepared to provide the best, safest and most advanced care."
