Mercy Hospital Jefferson is located in Crystal City, Mo. The existing campus was constructed in 1953 with semi private rooms. Over the years it was expanded to contain approximately 491,556 SF of space in buildings ranging from 1 to 5 stories. In 2013 Bates was hired to expand the existing campus with a 90-private-bed inpatient tower, new public admitting and waiting rooms, and an expanded emergency department. A new stand-alone cancer center will be constructed on adjacent property. An addition to the existing central utility plant will include new emergency generators and cooling towers for the hospital. Other significant renovations include: a new cardiology diagnostic department, fully renovated LDR and Postpartum department, new gift shop and chapel, new outpatient clinics, renovation of the existing cancer center into outpatient behavioral health, and various renovations and updates throughout. The new building is a 4-story structure with the capacity to expand vertically an additional 3 stories. Materials will conform to the Mercy Guidelines and Brand Standards. The new inpatient tower will be connected to the existing facility through new north and south galleries which are constructed with glass to allow natural light to flood the public spaces. New entry canopies will be constructed at the hospital, clinic, and emergency department entries as part of an entire rebranding of the facility. This project will be completed by the end of 2017.
