It's Time to Grow Again
As medicine continues to evolve, we too are growing with it.
Today, St. Clair is embarking on a major transformation, a transformation that includes constructing new facilities to ensure our patients have better access to the latest services and technologies.
Fact is, we are the region’s fastest growing hospital. In an era when inpatient cases are declining, ours grew by nearly 22% since 2006. During that same period, outpatient volume grew 130%. Simply put, we’ve outgrown our space and need to separate our outpatien services from inpatient services on our main campus.
Outpatient testing and minimally invasive procedures and surgeries have changed how health care is delivered. Providing all these services under one roof delivers significant benefits to patients, from reduced costs to an enhanced experience.
We want to make outpatient procedures more comfortable and convenient for our patients and their families. Constructing a separate Outpatient Center on our main campus will create an experience that’s easier and less stressful for our patients and will allow inpatient testing to proceed more quickly and efficiently.
Our vision is to construct a six-story building with state-of-the-art clinical spaces, including pre- and post-op suites and amenities. It will also house comprehensive diagnostic services and multidisciplinary physician offices, providing one-stop health care services, all under one roof.
This new Outpatient Center is the largest addition to St. Clair since our expansion in 1978. The project also includes an Employee Parking Garage and central utility building to modernize campus infrastructure. We are planning to connect the Center with the existing Hospital. In addition, we are realigning N. Wren Drive to better connect with Bower Hill Road, increasing public safety and reducing traffic congestion.
With our new Outpatient Center, St. Clair is breaking ground in how an independent hospital continues to serve, grow, innovate and thrive. We hope you will join us in making our vision for the future a reality.
