SSM Debuts $24M Facility in St. Charles

By on April 20, 2017

From St. Louis Post-Dispatch:  SSM Health showed off on Wednesday (April 19) its new $24 million outpatient facility in St. Charles, which officials say will provide easier access to health services.

The center opens to the public Monday.

“This makes perfect sense for us,” said Mike Bowers, president of St. Joseph Hospital in downtown St. Charles.

Bowers said the location was easily visible from Interstate 70 and would allow patients to access outpatient services without having to go to the St. Charles hospital location, which is two miles away.

The three-story outpatient center, which replaced the former Columns Banquet Center, has an urgent care center and will provide specialty services such as endocrinology and physical therapy. The center will also offer imaging services, including X-rays, MRIs and mammograms.

Bowers said SSM was attracted to the site because of the large investment in infrastructure in recent years.
