St. Luke’s Outpatient Center Building B enhances patient care in the region.
Chesterfield, Mo. (May 3, 2017) — McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. has completed construction of a new five-story, 106,000-square-foot outpatient services building on the west campus of St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Mo.
The new $40 million St. Luke’s Outpatient Center Building B adjoins St. Luke’s Mr. and Mrs. Theodore P. Desloge, Jr. Outpatient Center. The structure provides additional space for new physician offices as well as the expansion of St. Luke’s physical therapy and cardiac rehabilitation services. Other St. Luke’s services that have relocated to the building include EEG/EMG; the nutrition wellness and diabetes center; the anticoagulation clinic; and wound care and hyperbaric medicine.
“The dedication of St. Luke’s new outpatient services building is a significant event for St. Luke’s Hospital and healthcare in our region,” said Christine M. Candio, RN, FACHE, St. Luke’s Hospital president and chief executive officer. “As our community grows and changes, we work to stay ahead of patient needs by continuing to provide convenient access to the highest quality care and services possible.”
To emphasize safety, team communication and overall efficiency throughout construction, McCarthy and its subcontractor partners used iPads and advanced construction software, including BIM 360, NoteVault and Bluebeam applications.
“McCarthy is pleased to continue our long-term partnership with St. Luke’s Hospital as it continues its expansion throughout the greater St. Louis region,” said Corey Black, project manager of McCarthy.
The new building, which is being reviewed for LEED certification, integrates sustainability through the use of healthy, regional materials; bioretention basins to slow and treat onsite stormwater runoff; and the generation of minimal construction waste.
