FULTON - Governor Jay Nixon announced the selection of a lead design firm Monday that will rebuild Fulton State Mental Hospital.

"With conditions at Fulton deteriorating daily, putting patients and caregivers at risk, having the lead design firm in place will ensure the planning and design process can begin without unnecessary delays," Nixon said.

After a selection process, global consulting firm Parsons Brinckerhoff will plan and design the new hospital. The firm expects work to begin in the late spring or early summer of 2015.

The Office of Administration's Facilities Management, Design and Construction Division chose Parsons Brinckerhoff which has offices in St. Louis for the project.
