Crystal City to Break Ground On $135M Hospital Expansion


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 (http://bit.ly/1KjCipT ) reports the project will create private rooms at the hospital. Gov. Jay Nixon is expected to be in attendance for a groundbreaking ceremony Monday.

According to hospital spokesman John Winkelman, the project will include reconstruction of the front of the hospital to improve patient and visitor access.
