Crystal City hospital set to break ground on $135M expansion
CRYSTAL CITY (AP) - Mercy Jefferson Hospital is set to break ground in Crystal City on a $135 million project that will focus on adding a new three-story patient tower to the 251-bed facility.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the project will create private rooms at the hospital. Gov. Jay Nixon is expected to be in attendance for a groundbreaking ceremony Monday.
The project will include reconstruction of the front of the hospital to improve patient and visitor access, according to hospital spokesman John Winkelman.
