$550 Million SLU Hospital in the Works
The future of the iconic Desloge Tower is in question as SLU and SSM announce their plans for a new hospital complex to the north... One thing for sure is that this will be good for the construction industry and for the surrounding neighborhoods - a great investment in the City and Midtown!
SSM Health’s master plan for its new academic medical center calls for a 316-bed, 802,000-square-foot replacement hospital and new outpatient care center for SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital adjacent to the current hospital. The price tag for the project is $550 million.
The project is being developed as a partnership between SSM Health and Saint Louis University.
The new complex will be located on the north side of the existing facility between Rutger and Lasalle streets, on Grand Avenue.
A goal of the project is to better integrate the hospital with neighboring Saint Louis University School of Medicine
